Yep. Without John this pub is certainly boring, see the last two weeks

I think that I have found a secret impugner of my reputation. Anyone want to offer any evidence?
This is the point: I have worked diligently for decades to make better audio. I do it for a living, so it is easier for me to have tried more things than many here. I don't really 'cut-and-try' at random, but I listen to what has worked for others, as well as myself, and I don't deliberately push people away by telling them that something is 'impossible'.
The more we are educated by the 'system' the less we are inclined to accept 'new' information. Ever talk to your MD doctor about your favorite vitamin supplement? Same thing.
A few weeks ago, I accidently came across an input to TAN, a network that was popular, before the internet got going, bigtime. It was 13 years old! Yet, I was debating at the AES, EXACTLY the same stuff that I get, from Syn08, Cordell, et al exactly as I get here, today. I am apparently wasting my time, as Dimitri has already collected my inputs on the internet for the last 10 years, and put them up for anyone to read. I just don't have enough time left to waste my time, repeating myself. I 'may' have 10 more years, if that, given the state of my associates and their maladies, and I have come to realize that nobody is going to change the direction of this thread, except me.

Thanks for the quick response, anyway. At least you might give it a fair hearing.

I've removed a bunch of OT posts that dealt with personalities.

Thanks SY (I think), I am not interested in making your job more difficult or time-consuming, in fact it is embarrassing to me that you have to do it. I will try to be less 'inflammatory' in future, if possible.

I would love to see if this circuit is more suitable for discrete applications. I have to be careful and not make any lawyers unhappy so in this case I have to stick with simply pointing out what's there already (and in the public domain).
