No, I am just teasing you, Dick. I am find it immensely amusing that you
object to me making fun of you like this when in prior threads you have
written about me that:
"Stereophile, the ultimate MQA cheerleader has lost all credibility . . ."
"Luminaries with far more credibility and brain power than you . . . "
"You have no credibility. Pathetic sir. Pathetic."
"I will take the word of Mr. Koch over the likes of you anyday of the week."
"If you were not a Stereophile hack, you would be banned."
"When you have no defense against shilling, phoney journalism, you resort
to name calling."
"clever and cowardly"
And now "No wonder Meridian fired their PR Agency. Why do they need
one..they have you and your little MQA Brigade."
Laughing at you, not with you, Dick.
You have not published one single critical report of MQA. You crowned it as the second coming back in 2014 prior to any evidence what so ever being presented aside from a carefully packaged and canned demo.
I will be laughing at you when the whole thing goes up in flames and you are on the unemployment line.
But why would you expect them to?
As far as I can tell, Stereophile doesn't publish critical reports on anything. They don't position themselves as a consumer magazine or as an advocate for the consumer interest. This is outside their purview.
They do occasionally publish, without comment, links on their site to matters of consumer interest, as a service to their readers.
"...and you are on the unemployment line."
The problem with hyperbole is that it quickly devolves into statements that are unlikely to prove true.
"They don't position themselves as a consumer magazine or as an advocate for the consumer interest. This is outside their purview."
This is incorrect. They DO position themselves as a consumer advocate. Mr. Atkinson has posted here publicly on numerous occasions that their mission is to "server the reader". Their "reader" one has to assume is mostly consumers, with of course, industry participants.
As far as my hyperbole, if Stereophile is dead wrong about MQA, after putting so much stock in it, should their not be consequences?
What 'stock' are you talking about ? As far as I can tell, Stereophile did their job and reported on a new audio format. As they reported on HDCD, SACD and DVD-A.
For hyperbole, it was Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound, not Mr. Atkinson, who made the reader think this was the second coming. Read Harley's editorials (and reports) on MQA and see how different they are from John A's.
To everyone else: we got burned from hi-rez formats and this could be the source of suspicion over MQA. Were previous hi-rez formats better than CD ? With downloads, the same question, but with the added problem of mastering provenance.
Some audio writers are still lampooning SACD and hi-rez downloads. Anthony Cordesman of The Absolute Sound called these "expensive frauds" at the end of 2015, in one of his product reviews.
It's not just MQA, it's any format that claims better sound but doesn't deliver...
MQA is not a format. It is a fabrication.
Even an Old Testament god has more things to worry about than whether Stereophile got MQA wrong. Opposing MQA does not require vilifying JA.
