John, you're entitled to your opinions, but you are not entitled to lie about me.

Yikes! Huge PA behind the band. Sure glad I didn't have to run FOH or even monitors on that one.

Actually that was another of the Supreme Court's decisions! He is too.

That's what the differential mics allow.
The most innovative part of that whole setup.

It never ceases to amaze me that when I try to present my position on something, such as the 'history of scientific discovery', I am constantly 'corrected' by SY. This has happened more than a few times, and it 'implies' that I am 'reckless with the truth'. No, I just have a different point-of-view.
To be clear, I have just tried to point out the difference in opinion that SY and I share about scientific 'authority', not to make up something about our differences. What I stated is 'true' to the best of my knowledge and experience.

John, what I quoted above from your post was not a difference of opinion. You attribute things to me that I never said. That is lying. Don't do that, it makes you appear dishonest as well as woefully ignorant of history. The latter is fine, most people are, and get their history from comic books and vaguely remembered elementary school classes. The former is unacceptable.

Yeah, I remember the differential mics - a very clever kludge. Putting the PA in front of the mics works better.

Also making flat frequency response is further improvement.
