Subj: NAD Receiver

The NAD Receiver arrived today. The condition is excellent as you described in
your web site. I hooked it up to two bookshelf speakers and a subwoofer in my
office to test. It is incredible! The sound is so smooth and rich at nominal
and low volumes. It is exactly as I had hoped for. You canâ€™t find equipment
like this nowadays for such reasonable prices.

Enjoy the "Used Section" at your audio dealer? Then you'llLAUGH at my website!
And if you enjoy the "used section" at an audio dealer, you're quickly
realise that Drescherdumpster.com isn't anything like a real dealer.
He sells junk, not audio.
His "service" is a quick plug-in and a shine.
He stores all this junk in his overflowing garage.
The REAL owners of audio.net have filed a fraud complaint with AOL.
Here's the recent SPAMMED AD from Drescherdumpster.com. Look how long this
crap has been sitting in his garage, rotting away. Surely not selling!
Clearly, the group has voted DRESCHERDUMPSTER the biggest used-audio
charlatan on the internet! Congrats, Kennie!
Read these FACTS and then RUN, not walk, to a REAL DEALER!

Enjoy Brian L. McCarty? Then you'll LAUGH at WorldJAZZ.CON! (tv)
The below is a forgery by Brian L. McCarty:
The equipment Ken handles is of great interest to the vintage market.
McCarty has never seen or bought a piece of Ken's equipment. Hence it is slander.
McCarty has never been to Ken's place of business, and is unaware of the
conditions of storage.
Ken's REPUTATION on this group has been flawless. There has never been a
complaint except by McCarty sockpuppets.
As "audio.net" is not trademarked, there is no basis for fraud, and AOL does
not handle such complaints. Ken Drescher is fully entitled to use
"audio.net" as a business name.

association with the site, it is a matter of historical record that he has

appears to comprise an investment offering, but in fact, is a bunch of phony
names, nonexistent associations and affiliations. The site constantly
changes, but one thing is apparent: the intent to defraud investors of their

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have informed me that no

In recent days, McCarty has added two fictitious people to his website:
1. " Ron Groove Davis", who McCarty originally created as "Wes Groove Davis"
2. "Alexei Afonin" (notelephonin) ?
These are added to "Krishna Mahbren", who was created from a living person,
The website is remarkable in that it does not contain a single truthful
statement. It changes constantly. Always prominent are nonexistent people
as frontmen, and affiliation with nonexistent events. Previous versions have
also featured fictional alliances with large companies, and with nonexistent
companies. From time to time, McCarty also steals the names of actual people
to decorate his websites. For example, in the case of
my name, Robert Morein, was once featured as an "endor*****t."
McCarty came to the attention of quite a number of us for unprovoked attacks
of sellers in the usenet newsgroup rec.audio.marketplace. He is a habitual
identity thief, frequently posting under my own name. The attention he drew
from his attacks on small scale commerce in this usenet group is what caused
a number of us to investigate and focus on his business activities. We were
quite surprised to find that he is himelf a scammer. He relocated from Los
Angeles in the late 1990's, where he was once a member of IATSE Local 700,
and worked with noted sound recordist Jeff Wexler. We have never found any
evidence that Wexler is aware or approves of McCarty's activities.
McCarty lives at the Coral Sands Apartments, at 65 Vasey Esplanade, Trinity
Beach, Cairns, Queensland, Australia. He uses the following email addresses:
Once in Australia, McCarty founded Coral Seas Studios, which quickly became
financially insolvent. Perhaps the major backer, ABN Amro, already detected
anomalies in McCarty's personality. Following that business failure, which
became a minor issue in the reelection of P.M. John Howard, McCarty
concentrated on funding a second initiative, "WorldJAZZ", a scheme for
Internet broadcasting. But with his reputation damaged and cut off from
legitmate business activity, McCarty's predatory tendency came more to the
fore. His website became ever more devious in an attempt to lure investors.
In 2003, notices appeared in several online publications that McCarty was
producing jazz broadcast material for Gene Parrish
(http://www.worldwidejazz.com ) Notices appeared in a publication of the
Embassy of France, and in one other publication. Mr. Parrish is a noted NPR
jazz broadcast host. When contacted, it was apparent that Parrish had never
heard of McCarty. While I cannot prove that McCarty posted these bogus
notices, he certainly had the motive to do so.
Following the exposure of the false producing notices, McCarty's name
completely vanished from the Internet. He resorted entirely to false
identities to create business partners who do not exist.
1. "Dr. Krishna Mahbren" is derived from a real person, Krishna Mahadoo,
V.P. of Beverly Hills Film Studios, a pink-sheet stock. McCarty cruises the
Internet for companies that don't answer the phone. McCarty made Mahadoo an
employee of that company's stock transfer agent, First American Stock
Transfer of Phoenix. When I pointed this out in a usenet post and notified
Mr. Mahdoo by mail, McCarty changed the company to "First American Stock of
Denver." Then he changed Mahadoo to Mahbren, and tacked on a "Dr." to the
2. The claim that Moscow Central TV is to use material supplied by WorldJAZZ
is doubtful, as they were notified by mail. This claim has been made for the
better part of a year. When the date expires, McCarty simply creates a new
3. "Event Sponsorship 2nd Year Running". This event does not exist. There is
no "Jersey Jazz Bass Festival." Previously, the website has exhibited a link
to the Island of Jersey in the English Channel. This locale has a surf
fishing festival, the Jersey Bass festival. There is no music festival. In
the past, association was advertised with "jazz musician" Peter Thliveros,
who is, in fact, a professional bass fisherman, not a musician.
4. The website is registered to "David Ellison", a fictitious person. In
the past, many different fictitious persons have been used, in conjunction
with yahoo mailboxes. Among McCarty's aliases, we have: Krishna Mahadoo,
Anthony Ramallo, David Ellison, David C.L. Feng, Ying Hong Huang, Lee
Hodges, Lee Moretti, Melinda Hsu, Melinda Shu, Robert Morein, Robert X
Morein, Sylvan Morein, Sylvan X Morein, et al.
5. The website morphs constantly. McCarty combs the Internet for identities
to steal. He chooses victims who do not represent themselves on the Web, and
are not easily reached by phone.
6. McCarty's other website, http://www.coralseastudios.com, has a similar
history. Amazingly, between November of 2002 and June of 2003, McCarty used
as an endor*****t on the website http://www.coralseastudios.com.

The obvious question is, if McCarty is so anxious to scam, why does he make
a constant racket under easily detectable fictitious names? It appears that
part of McCarty's mental illness is a distortion of reality. McCarty has an
obsession with the formal aspects of registering a business. To him, the "in
print" appearance is all that counts. It doesn't occur that people can
detect the reality that lies beyond. To McCarty fictitious names and posting
aliases are a real shield, just like a cat will crawl into a shopping bag to
McCarty had an early scheme for Internet radio. He claims to have sold
musical performance properties and/or a business plan to Black Entertainment
Television for $9.2M. Subsequently, he left Los Angeles. One unsubstantiated
rumor is that he left to avoid prosecution for a *** crime, presumably by
paying off the victim or family. Once in Australia, he made the acquaintance
of the brother of P.M. John Howard, who introduced him to contacts at ABN
Amro, an investment banking firm. They created a business plan for some kind
of a sound studio, still represented by the website
http://www.coralseastudios.com. After approximately a year, ABN withdrew
from partnership, but left the studio project still solvent. Some time
later, it went bankrupt or nearly so, owing $270,000 to it's employees. At
this point, Australia's entitlement law kicked in, paying the employees
monies owed them, with the exception of codirectors McCarty and Jeff Wexler.
It would appear that McCarty's enterprises failed because he has some kind
of mental imbalance, which exhibits signs of both schizophrenia and
obsessive-compulsive disorder. The impersonations which he makes of me are
a fraction of the numerous identities which he has used in the past, and
continues to use, on occasion, in the present. McCarty may actually believe
he is the person who he impersonates. Many of the identities are of
elaborate construction, taking some six months or more to take shape.
McCarty seems to have a magical belief that use of false identities provides
But why would McCarty want to escape his own identity so badly? Speculation
centers around the possibility that he did something not socially acceptable
in Los Angeles.
