Remove all of the comments of people who don't have a stake in the discussion as you define "stake" and this place would be a ghost town. This place is all about discussion - the commonality that gives us all a stake is our passion to one degree or another about music and the gear used to produce it. I kept seeing EPs for sale in the emporium at high prices and was interested in what made them so expensive and apparently so desirable with the idea of possibly buying one. In trying to find out more about them I came upon this thread. I began at the beginning of this thread when the buzz was entirely positive and read ahead and saw that mood crumble and apparently for good reason.
