As far as I know, there's only one guy who tried to pull an underhanded legal maneuver here.

Speaking of appalling stadium sound, I was watching a bit of the 'official' broadcast of the World Cup opening in Brazil, when the boys and girls were doing their singsong part - if the song was anything recognisable I wouldn't have a clue what it was, a vague, echoey murkiness that was probably picked up by a mic somewhere in the stands.

And this is 2014 ...

Ok, 2013, I was talking about high level world touring acts, that I have backline and FOH acess to ... when the singer of a big show (GNR) comments by the fourth song over the PA 'that's the best sound Iv'e ever had' I choose to think that he being was perfectly serious....an ultimate DBT test actually.

I haven't seen/heard any of the world cup soccer.
I do find that the F1 car stuff audio is bloody good nowadays.

The skill level of the participants needs to be noted, as does training time for such tests findings to be properly valid.
Sighted/extended testing is still valid.

I noted in another playback much better sound, so probably varied per broadcaster, choices made as to where the audio was picked up - trying to pick up the ambience as well only points out how bloody awful stadium sound usually is ...

BTW, notice that our boys did OK - we lost, but we had the Chileans pretty scared, it could have easily ended as a draw, .

Glad your team made it; our golden boy running qualification rosters chases away talent at all levels.
He seems threatened by competence.
Still angry he squandered and cut Hargreaves prime time until he gave up and played for England.
I noticed audio quality varied between different broadcasters too.

Default After burn

Just finished shopping for some rca sockets on the online site which rhymes with ixnay.
The Chinese are greasing up tellurium copper shields to improve large Bybee quantum purifiers.
I guess now they'll keep doing whatever they do after a large coronal mass ejection hits and wipes out all our electrical grid and goodies.
Wonder if they have permission ?

It appears the ends are open to anything though.
Shields at 40% , captain!

Actually, if these are really Bybee devices inside, the metal end-caps will give substantially more shielding than is obvious.
