JV in is usual way likes to trash me, KBK thinks im a fucking idiot, JA thinks i have no idea. the bottom line is that i design the largest industrial audio systems in the world for a living, these are state of the art systems utilising embedded cobranet audio synchronized to 5ms latency with thousands of I/O points. The 3 stooges dismiss me because i dont design rip off high end hifi, what i design is far more sophisticated at every level. This gives me the technical background to state that a $30,000 power amplifier is a scam, im sorry that this pisses off the people with a vested interest but it does not change the facts, JV and KBK should take their heads out and smell the roses, people are getting smarter and will not put up with these scams.
Easy now, I never ever called Alan an idiot.
I think you should try to design high end audio..as you don't understand the the process or the outcome, at all. As stated, I've got nothing against you Alan, but you are seemingly constantly talking as if your systems (your words, not mine) are more sophisticated.
In some ways -they are. In the general comparative sense of your thoughts and thinking. But NOT even remotely in ways that mean anything to an audiophile.
Apples to oranges, my friend.
No fool I know of who is an audiophile would put 'professional industrial audio' in their house to listen to.
It takes a lifetime to learn how to build High end audio. You are on a different path. I would put up a $1 bet that you would fail utterly as a real high-end audio designer.
Your comparison is totally invalid.
I most seriously doubt that more than a few readers (I'm talking about counting on my toes and fingers out of 100's of thousands of readers) of Stereophile or any other audio magazine, for that matter, would even remotely agree with you.
More to the exact 'should be and -is- self evident' point, 100's of thousands of people are buying and reading audio magazines specifically because they disagree with your position. They have learned the hard way (we have all tried pro audio gear in our systems) that pro audio simply does not cut it-at all. Not in the least. Not even remotely 'true to the original signal'. Pro audio and industrial audio is designed for a different base purpose.
It isn't a war, Alan, it is simply an attempt to try and get you to understand these simple realities. Added to the mix is your insulting and incorrect trashing of things you know nothing about.
