What's with the new Audere ad? They make a good onboard preamp, no doubt, but I'm not sure what to make of this new ad. I'm not sure if they're joking or not! The second frame just kills me. It's like a bad rendering of what's supposed to be an angry woman (presumably your wife or girlfriend), baring her teeth, reminding you that your agreement is still on – NO new basses. Then he's like, "Relax, babe! Check it out. It's an AUDERE!" What, she's supposed to be like, "Ooh! Well why didn't you say so? This changes everything! Their Z-mode impedance-switching circuitry sure is innovative, huh? Aw, I'm sorry I argued with you, honey. Would you like another beer?" Sure I get the joke but couldn't it have been done a little more tastefully, more subtly? It comes across as kind of one-dimensional, masogynistic even. What do you think? *Not sure if this should be in OT or not.
