My credit card number is 1. I was an early-adopter.

It's not as if my kids want real cinnabar in their paint set.

More fallout from our Austin concert taping experience. If you look at the spectra a harmonica is a great multitone signal with the frequency components sometimes going over several octaves at very small amplitude differences. I guess it would make a great IM "by ear" test signal.

I don't know what to think or do about this situation. I have maintained a consistent stance for the last 20 years, so far as I can tell, to openly discuss and learn from others what works to make audio design as successful as possible.
I find that anything too 'controversial' such as KBK's liquid cables, VDH's Carbon cables, or even Hawksford's 50+ page paper on wires is discounted, and even laughed at, here. Yet I have personally spoken with each of these designers, and I think, in fact I know, that they are 'on the level' doing the best they can, and just found this area of design fascinating enough to pursue. Yet they, as well as me, are all criticized as being 'commercial', for also trying to make money from their efforts, etc. Well, we all have to make a living.

John,

I didn't know you followed finance? A book about Outright Liars? Or was that an audio marketing comment?

Oh you mean Gladwell's book, pardon the interruption.
