Default REV33: Here's some snake oil for you to sink your teeth into

REV33 | REV33 TrueSound?

The "patent" behind all this nonsense is 9,247,340.

Enjoy.

How to seemingly get cred. Shame the AES allows thes ebriefs, but guess it helps pay the bills.

The use of the word " wanna " in the sales pitch was sophisticated enough to leave no doubt regarding their professional credentials in my mind.

I love how the abstract says "An impedance matched resonant circuit uses inductors coupling an audio source and a speaker array in order to reduce feedback reflection induced by an audio signal traveling from the audio source to the array of speakers."

But the actual CLAIM in the patent says "1. A circuit configured to reduce quantization noise in an audio signal reconstructed from digitally encoded audio..."

This guy Rauschmayer supposedly has a PhD in electrical engineering from Temple University and had been with Texas Instruments for 14 years before getting involved with REV33, but the patent reads like it was written by some layperson stitching together results from Google searches. No idea who this Wayne J. Powell is.

Yeah, note how they disingenuously use the term "paper" in the URL. Christ, this thing isn't even a preprint let alone a paper.

Just shows how worthless 99% of patents are...

I love the "REV33 is configured to the specific brand and model of your in-ear monitors or headphones." - then a huge drop down list... Bet they are all the same....
