Dr. AIX

Mark Waldrep, aka Dr. AIX, has been producing and engineering music for over 40 years. He learned electronics as a teenager from his HAM radio father while learning to play the guitar. Mark received the first doctorate in music composition from UCLA in 1986 for a "binaural" electronic music composition. Other advanced degrees include an MS in computer science, an MFA/MA in music, BM in music and a BA in art. As an engineer and producer, Mark has worked on projects for the Rolling Stones, 311, Tool, KISS, Blink 182, Blues Traveler, Britney Spears, the San Francisco Symphony, The Dover Quartet, Willie Nelson, Paul Williams, The Allman Brothers, Bad Company and many more. Dr. Waldrep has been an innovator when it comes to multimedia and music. He created the first enhanced CDs in the 90s, the first DVD-Videos released in the U.S., the first web-connected DVD, the first DVD-Audio title, the first music Blu-ray disc and the first 3D Music Album. Additionally, he launched the first High Definition Music Download site in 2007 called iTrax.com. A frequency speaker at audio events, author of numerous articles, Dr. Waldrep is currently writing a book on the production and reproduction of high-end music called, "High-End Audio: A Practical Guide to Production and Playback". The book should be completed in the fall of 2013.

    From their graphs and description they seem to be alluding to the sinc function. However it all looks like a load of pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo (although anyone who has the time to follow this rabbit down the hole may correct me).

    They’d be better off taking the subjectivist route, rather than trying to make claim to engineering credibility.

    I’ve come up with a new acronym: TPA, for Tea Party Audio.

    Their motto is “My mind’s made up, don’t confuse me with facts.” (One of my mother’s best sardonic coinages.)

    Once you recognize this, you can let your blood pressure come down.

    Nobody’s going to be able to persuade the DSD TPA crowd of anything inconsistent with what they already believe.

    Have you looked at the products on their web site? The only thing I could find that has their “Super Digital” logo is the SDD3 super digital delay line. Look at the spec sheet for it.
    http://www.kv2audio.com/en/product/processors/sdd3/specifications#t

    Channel Crosstalk 90dB
    Signal to Noise Ratio 105dB
    Total Harmonic Distortion 0.005%

    Seems like poor performance. Nothing like the Benchmark equipment. So a load BS.

      It’s just another site full of hype and spin.

      I hadn’t seen Craig’s take on High-Resolution. I know him and will read the piece shortly.
