sleep better when buying and selling gear. Ultimist was built with one over-riding goal: to provide ground-breaking buyer and seller safety in the used marketplace. The description of the technologies and algorithms used would fill this page many times over - but can you say: zero tolerance?
a culture of respect. Respect for everyone, newbies to hardcase audiophiles; for dealers, for the press, for manufacturers, for those trying to make a living and for those just trying to relax and have a good time. Posts by trolls or obnoxious bullies are obliterated. Only (quality) audiophile ads are allowed. Links to external high-end audio articles and websites are encouraged.
our members deserve the best and ultimist works like, and has cool features like, the extremely popular sites those non-audiophile type people are using. Lots of big photos. Lots of videos. Lots of maps. Lots of drooling [or maybe that is just us]. Easily email other members, post your system and music collections, or just cruise the site looking at all the awesome gear.
if it is cool. if it is useful. or just because. Everybody here, members and staff, is friendly, helpful, and many are quite knowledgeable - and, shall we say, a wee bit fanatical? OK. A lot bit fanatical.
