repond only to direct questions about your product, or to clear up any misinformation.
Also, remove your website addy from your signature line, as that info should be included in your Industry Member profile, already. We prefer to not see it included in your post proper, or say in your moniker.
I thought I had been compliant. I don't have a signature line. I'll add some details about my many manufacturer affiliations to my profile, is that enough for me to be legit (and not seem like a shill)?
Also, am I constrained from offering advise and experience with audio technology in general?
generally, unsolicited and wholesale commentary by MMDs (manufacturers, marketers and dealers) is not allowed at AudioAsylum, as a fundemental, core philosophy.
As I said above, you can answer direct questions and/or post to clear up misinformation discussed here, about your products.
However (and this is a big 'but'), there is some leeway given to me, as dictated by the regulars frequenting the various fora here at AA. Some asylum regulars like to and enjoy hearing from the designers and manufacturers, but there's a fine line.
The quandry I face here in Computer Audio, is twofold. First, it's a new facet in HiFi that is rapidly expanding and there's a lot of cash to be made by people like you. This, in turn, leads to shilling, under the guise of 'participating'. Shilling can be obvious, or it can be subtle. Secondly, the key is to participate without highlighting your specific products, which kind of defeats the point of posting here to drum up business and make money.
I'd love for you to ease on in and enlighten the people visiting this place, but I also can't let it be a free and blatant 'FOR SALE' forum, either.
Anyhow, best to leave your products out of the discussion and stick to design theories or overall HiFi experiences, if you want to discuss the hobby, here.
Take care, Chris
