    "What The Specs Don’t Tell You… And Why"

    This was, by far, the best presentation I've encountered at RMAF. Be patient because there's something for everyone here. This is one of the rare cases where the objectivist and subjectivist can see eye-to-eye. It was even better being there because it was very easy to hear the various types of distortion demonstrated. I'm not so sure how well it comes across on youtube.

    Of course, Amir sat front row and asked several questions at the end (He's a "gunner" in law school parlance). Enjoy!

    Funny you should say this. I am on their mailing list and had signed up for their local seminar on acoustics and DAC measurements. Was running late so parked in this expensive lot and paid $25. Run upstairs and to my surprise there is no one there but the one guy that I had met in their booth!!! He told me the presenter had gotten sick and so they had cancelled the training. I go home and see that he had sent the cancellation just half hour before the session was to start so of course I and I am sure many others had not seen it. I reminded the guy that we had met at RMAF and i could see his silent reaction, "oh no, that guy!"

    Was that you toward the very end in the Q&A? Oh, my gosh. You are actually a human being, not just the voice of God in an online forum.

    Hey, good questions. I respect your outlook.

    Yes. I'm the guy standing in the isle at the back. It's hard to see me because I'm so far back.

    It was cool to hear these distortions in real time.

    I think he passed the buck. Our products are capable of telling the truth.
    They also can be manipulated to suit your purpose.
