Well Fallsroad, why don't you chew on this one...
"I'd save the cash for an outboard headphone amp. No offense to the vintage Marantz receivers - they have amazing tuners in them - but the headphone output isn't the best it could be, especially with those 'phones."
Wasn't that one of your statements? It should actually read:
...but the headphone output needs improvement...
If you want to get caught up in this (so-called) war, don't bother. I worked for an editor for about 3 years. So I know when I or somebody else is taking (grammatical) shortcuts. I was ONLY having fun, just like I am with you. I'm sure you could easily find something else in this post that was incorrectly written, by me or someone else. That's cute that you want to be the mediator though...
Whoa whoa whoa, Ladislao, I wasn't on you about your grammar or spelling, and my sentence is technically correct, if informal. And my comment about "feeding" versus "distracting was likewise a joke.
No need to jump my case. Besides, grouchiness is bad for your health.
Go in peace, enjoy your headphones, be happy.
I have no quarrel with you.
