    I have found that Paul’s “facts” tend to support the products he is selling or designing at the time and then change as his product lineup changes. There is a lot of mis-information spread on the PS Audio forums and his posts.

      oh, and watch out — you can now expect to get a lot of responses from PS Audio fanboys telling you why you’re wrong and he’s right. They’re very sensitive.

        It’s hard to argue with facts…and it seems that Paul hasn’t spent a lot of time producing records. I’m going to leave a comment on his page.

          A good producer is one of the most powerful tools we have to help us create great sounding albums in the studio.
          However, the art of producing is a subjective art, not unlike the creation of much modern music where we use sampled and or synthesized sounds to build a mix.

          Thankfully, acoustics and the physics behind all sound sources is absolute.

          Were it not, it would make subjective decision making one heck of an interesting process!
