Two questions to make you mad.
@mahgister  Thanks for your note, I had a feeling you'd have some interesting thoughts. I think A I will change everything in sound one of the interesting things that will change soon will be the meaningless ideas that we pay so much for today tha...

Of course the reason I mentioned the ASML machine that sells for 300M$ that makes 3nm chips is because it is the most accurate machine mankind has ever made (not including the LHC), The LHC uses super conductive cables so they are in a different c...

@mijostyn  love your views, if your ever in Idaho look me up.

@mahgister  I’d love to hear your view on where AI (Artificial Intelligence) will lead recording and playback in music and movies.  
Two questions to make you mad.
I’ve had a fun and way to long argument with a friend of mine that works in a vintage guitar store in LA, he knows practically every guitar player and their set up tout there. I would always tell him why do you sell all these beautiful guitars and... 
Real or Surreal. Do you throw accuracy out the window for "better" sound?
@mijostyn  Do I think the equipment that recording engineers use affects the recordings? That is a surprising subject and I think the answer is not really, I've listened to what great  actors sound like with my system so I instantly know how they ... 
Speakers 10 years old or older that can compete with todays best,
The Altec Lancing Voice of the theater speakers are used in the reverb chambers under Capitol Records in LA.   
Real or Surreal. Do you throw accuracy out the window for "better" sound?
@mapman  I agree with your points in many ways but I think music isn't subjective. The recorded music that comes through your system should be the same signal that comes out of everyone's system and has been molded into a very particular product. ...

  I've ran sound for hundreds of thousands of people live, recorded albums, and won Oscars for sound and in every project or concert there were always a lot of concessions and compromises to what I would have liked to do. That golden no compromis...

@czarivey Your right I shouldn't have made such a blanket statement, I'm a saxophone player for 50 years I love all types of Jazz, my point is how very well recorded modern jazz is. Jazz recordings today along with modern classical are probably th...

@inna There is no way to add sonic information to the recording, it's not a matter of easier or harder to record or playback. With that in mind you can't get any value out of equipment that is significantly better than what was used originally. Fo...

@mbmi No, I don't want to belabor this but I've set up many many digital recording setups (scars to prove it) and if the 1s and 0 are not exactly shaking hands the system will not work. This tells you many things for instance digital cables if the...

@mbmi Love that idea, here is why digital is cool. the handshake between the sender and receiver is either a 1 or a 0 so there’s really no room for error that is the power of digital. Of course there are other errors in the system like timing issu...

@mbmi  Ok this is going to sound weird but why would you do anything to change the sound of your CDs, here’s what I’m saying, imaging being wider doesn’t mean it right and imaging is really a phasing principle that makes the sound hit your ears at...

@mahgister It won't be long, my guess in 1.5 years that AI will completely changes the home audio world. Some smart company will use a group like the AES/EBU and record companies to agree on a baseline standard for acoustics. I believe that surrou...
