They say the heart of Rock & Roll is still beating, which is amazing if you consider all the blow it's done over the years.

"The Internet enables pompous blowhards to interact with other pompous blowhards in a big circle jerk of pomposity." - Bill Maher

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham

Spot on. Of all the audio myths I've seen promoted lately the one that surprises me most is that sound quality should improve with absolute accuracy. It's like claiming the positional stability of a puppy on a leash is improved by tying the leash to a lamp post located exactly on the equator instead of another one down the road.

How else can you ensure the Absolute Puppy Phase for your dog?

We just need to figure out the electronic equivalent to a tranquilizer dart, and keep a steady aim.

Has there ever been a review of an external clock where the sound was made worse?

So if I clocked my external clock from another external clock...

I bet that would sound even more awesomer.

Look, I know it's mean.  But sometimes the end justifies the mean.

Because they need the great long-term accuracy (like loses a second every billion years) and audio wants great short-term accuracy (like 10^-12 jitter).

Funny.... that's not in the brochure.
