As a publisher I would like to think you would have been above passing off opinion as fact here is what the man himself has to say about your claim and yes I am happy to talk about bass relevant subjects and as such helping people not being sucked in to outrageous claims that cable will give you the holy grail of tone is just part of the serviceAudioEnz wrote:The "10 biggest lies in Audio" was written by the publisher of The Audio Critic. He managed to published a rave review of a pair of speakers... from a company in which he had a partial ownership.
If anyone wishes to believe a piece written by someone with a (um, how should I put this?) tenuous grasp on ethics and truth, then feel free to go ahead.

1. The loudspeaker I wrote an article about was an engineering exercise in which I had participated. It was a prototype. Only several months later was a company formed of which I became a part owner and which started to make the speaker. When the article was written nobody was an owner.
2. None of the above is actually relevant. If a serial murderer declares that 2 + 2 = 4, then it's a fact regardless of his ethics. "The 10 Biggest Lies in Audio" was about scientific facts that could be easily confirmed from engineering books. It merely refuted unscientific nonsense propagated by the untutored; it could have been written by any educated technologist.
