How do they know what kind of speakers I use?
Or is there a DIP switch?

... even if they're right about the reason for what you perceive, they can only do it according to some arbitrary reference... what they judge to be the average case perhaps.




Dave and Jon,

Perhaps it works like the FAA's "average person's weight" rule on the airlines.  Since they don't have time (and don't want to offend the [heavier] passengers), instead of doing proper weight and balance for every commercial flight, they just multiply by the "average FAA person" weight of 180 pounds (used to be 156 pounds!).

Although, maybe that's about to change...

Should work for you the same way in monitors.  Oh wait, it didn't work for these poor passengers...

In examining the capture/reproduction platforms as used today in modern recording, compared to the research that is on going and the patents that are being approved AND demonstrated, we are in the bipedal stage in the recording/engineering science AND arts..compared to that of light speed travel.

Until the paradigm shifts.. in favor of new ways of thinking and implementation, we as audio engineers must amuse ourselves with baby steps such as converter technology and the "whys" of how well pure analogue recording..to this day meshes with our sensory system in very adequate ways.

Newer and bolder models of the way a reproduction system (from the capture to the audience) is implemented have proven to yield incredibly fascinating and rewarding results. Those who are thinking, and designing (and implementing) such novel approaches are certain to go forward while everyone else stands in amazement that such absurdly simple ideas can produce such vastly Superior results.

The old adage of "thinking outside of the box" is long overdue of acceptance by the status quo..they just don't want to see their pie sliced up and eaten..right before their very eyes!

The very security of copywritten artistic material also hangs in the balance,(!) and for every problem...there is ONE solution and many an attempt.

I thought "modern" jets weighed themselves?

And the worst part is Virgin had a chartered Lear 35 on the way to get her, but she had places to go, things to do, party to attend, and wouldn't wait.  That whole thing was about as dumb as it gets.
