You mean "removal of feet"? That had to have been good old Richard Heyser. I think he was a Caltech guy. Back in the '70s he did fantastic speaker reviews for Audio, with polar plots of the complex impedance and frequency response with phase included. Then he would do an inverse FFT on the frequency response to get the impulse response. The impulse response would show stuff like diffraction off the edges of the box. That's how I got into engineering - reading Audio at the local library.

Those were the good old days. Things audio weren't so polarized back then. People have such deeply entrenched positions nowadays, it tends to take the fun right out of it.

Mikek,
From the OPA604 datasheet:
“By its nature, sound quality is subjective. Furthermore, results of listening tests can vary depending on application and circuit configuration. Even experienced listeners in controlled tests often reach different conclusions”.

Elso, that tells you more about the target market for that chip than it does about any electrical reality.

Well put, Andy.

Having just spent an hour or so wading through this silly mess I can only conclude two things:

- some people seem to need to cling desperately to what they've been taught unwilling to open their eyes to the real world.

- the whole Monty Python crew would find great inspiration for a next movie in this methane cloud.

Jocko, you safely add another cow to that piccie.

Don't feel too happy- I stake out a middle ground

Me too, SY. But rather than sit on the fence, I've picked a large strainer post, which is much more comfortable and VERY stable....

(There is much to recommend the placid contemplation of the middle course, particularly when minds are inflamed...)

Cheers,

Hugh
