OK if you want to talk about government conspiracies that at least involve audio...Talk about what the outcome was from the MIG25 that defected to Japan in the mid 70's and what the US and allies learned!

Yeah right; if there's one thing that's make-believe in audio it must be stereo...

(Hint: there IS NO orchestra between your speakers. It's all make-believe. You're fooling yourself).

They learned how to make a stereo that would survive an EMP event. That way, even though all the power infrastructure for several hundred miles in every direction was toasted, every modern car rendered useless, no power, no water, no surviving humans, at least the stereo still woiks..
