PHASE is not a "setting"

I have seen a few folks listing the PHASE they have SET their cPLAY "to"
and must make a comment.

PHASE is not a setting like the others, well, maybe some folks do change ALL for each recording and for those with such an intrepid nature you have my full respect. BUT, PHASE is different. What other setting can be selected from the remote mouse? PHASE is absolutely dependent on the recording you have selected.

Sometimes the PHASE is vague and either setting sounds the same as the other but there are many recordings, the truly good recordings will reveal a best setting. One does need to learn to listen for this but one will learn and hear the difference. It does make a difference.

This is not, ideally, a set and forget setting. For the best sound it must be USED.

I feel much better now.
