IDK, maybe they were busy or got distracted...

 

 

...or maybe social media zealotry is easier than real-world confrontation? Too bad Izzy Slapowitz couldn't make it. I mean he's a retired professional wrestler!  🙄

Mocking
Questions
Allowed

 

Seriously, that's really all that is left to do so why show up at these $sells$ events?  The hard questions will be ignored, bypassed, etc.  With MQA, it lacks substance, so how do questions to sells men further our knowledge?  They don't.  Questions don't help sell MQA, so why would they address them in a substantive way if any are asked?  How could they and be honest and still $sell$ MQA?

 

Audio demos and shows are about sells and marketing, not the truth.  Of course JA and the promotional machine are going to spin all this to MQA's advantage, since everything (from CC presentation to this one) is an opportunity for putting MQA in the best possible light...

What's the old saying?  Put up or shut up.

 

All the people so hot to oppose MQA, and nobody shows up to even ask a "hard" question? 

 

Please.

Hi,

Not sure if people would be willing or be able (costs etc) to travel to the US just to ask a difficult question.

I like the way asskisson deprecates engineers as "internet denizens" then Bodio fan-boy chimes in

 

it is really pathetic


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

A great number of the loudest and most insistent voices are in the U.S.  At least a couple said they were going. 

 

Now the stupid and senseless attacks on John A. will start. At least he showed up and went. Probably would have chimed in some support too, if any of those loud voices had showed up.  Probably get a report on how security had their names and would not let them in.

Given the behaviour of the people at RMAF, I probably would engage the MQA people with fire hoses or tear gas

Maybe the critics are both smart, and grown-up enough, to not behave like the RMAF crowd, or be baited into a similar shouting match, something that the man who fancies himself a journalist seems to regret.

Yes, now that we are post technical with MQA and understand that it is almost as pure of an audiophile voodoo lump as can be, what's the point in engaging in a pseudo technical debate or Q&A with them and their supporters?   It's better in a diverse and sometimes subtle (sometimes not) way keep them talking about the wider things such as how they see themselves in the voodoo market, what they really think about consumers, etc.
