Hi Bif.. where am I going ? Is your question, correct ?
You quoted it... challenge our thinking ...
I think knowledge is power.
I get what Bif_ is asking. What is the end game besides having this knowledge? A lot of us in this thread have agreed with your objective statements about the big 3's pricing.
Yes, knowledge is power. What is it you would like us to do with that power? Not buy the Flagship boards unless they are drastically reduced in price?
Protest outside their headquarters demanding "fair" prices?
David, too funny.
Yes, I am going to ride around town on my bike today, and shake my fist at the sky and yell:
" Prices are too Damn High ! "
I think you are wise enough to see that us musicians/artist have certain similarities and interesting differences on how we function
and proceed in life.
So , I cannot tell you what to do with more knowledge. I can't tell Bif.
What you do with more knowledge is on you.
Or maybe some don't want to be bothered with more complex
or financial details.
Or maybe you and Bif and others already know it all
in regards to the 3 Big Dogs. I really can't say.
My intuition isn't always on.
I know exactly what I will do with more scrutinizing of the 3 Big Dogs and their high
pricing. I will continue studying these 3 co's for one.
Whenever I make a purchase, I have steps that I follow.
It involves extra work, more time.
Some here might say " I don't need to do that, no time for that '.
But who givesaShit what I do ? Thats my bubble.
if folks agree, and I see 5 or 6 on this topic, that have said so, that's
Hope this clears up your questions. Thanks.
