I just wanted to bring up a few points about the fact that some people say that if there is a difference that can be heard it can be measured:
Most measurements are NOT done from a single point- have you read *anything* on this site about measurement and tuning?
Interaural time difference, Interaural intensity difference, reflective zone versus resonant zone versus zone of confusion (Schroeder frequency) in a car cabin installation are all taken into account in the most basic measurement and tuning processes.
Here is a great place to start learning -> First-timers guide to measuring your system
Your generalizations about technology are naive at best, insulting at worst. Technology has not created a single problem in and of itself. It is a tool that can be applied in many wonderful (and terrifying) ways - by MAN. Religious fanaticism and blind ignorant belief have propagated far more violence and destruction than science.
Can we please invoke Godwin's law and kill this thread now.
