And it would have a comment by a second reviewer.
it did (p45) - and I agree.
I am unsure of the value of oath-helping. Scores hearing other than what I hear do not change what I hear.
What Mike refers to is the common procedure TAS used in earlier days of having multiple reviewers provide commentary on a particular component. While there was some similarity in their observations, each provided a unique perspective based upon their musical tastes, systems and priorities.
I have often agreed about the sonic signature of a given device with my audio friends and mentors, but sometimes arrive at a different conclusion for those reasons.
Yes. To the extent that a 2d commentary differs, one gets a 2fer -- nothing wrong with that & can be helpful, depending on quality (e,g,. "I think so too -- signed 'Bob'" would be low-quality oath-helping. Three or ten additional commentaries would add similarly; I do not see the requirement for a merely 2d opinion to qualify as "exemplary". To illustrate, in past decades I often found a single review by JGH more helpful than multiple by HP & Co.
