I have seen comments on the web, by respected mastering engineers, that state that firewire is audibly better than USB for an audio interface. This is supposedly the reason that the new Apple laptop machines have firewire that had not been in the previous generation.
I am struck by the reports from CES that seem to indicate that the high end manufacturers are using USB and not Firewire.
This seems to contradict the princible of best sound possible that has been the reason for the success of the high end industry.
I am afraid that the industry is trying to use a standard because the general population is familar with it, instead of using the best sounding one available.
So I ask, What's up w/dat?
