I'm trying to understand how these questions could or would be useful from a data standpoint... Imagining this being asked of car owners/driver...

  1. How happy are you with your vehicle purchase/car you drive
  2. Would you be happier as a driver if you had a brand new Lexus, BMW M series, and a New Mitsubishi SUV with money not being a factor ?
    Just about everyone would give a positive but relatively non-committal answer for the first one - and everyone would probably say "Hell ya!" for the second...

    But I can't imagine then the CEO of BMW saying "See -- 98% of people would be happier in their driving lives with a BMW. Retool the factory - as soon as this gets out our stock price is going through the roof..."

You're right about it seeming nonsensical and that was indeed the assumption I had when I received the questions - but from what I hear, data is very very far from 98% going for '"Hell ya!". Not so sure about the first question. But thinking out loud, it may make sense from the standpoint that someone might prefer a Porsche or a Lamborghini as opposed to a BMW, Lexus, ... some people may be very conscious of the environment and would prefer a hybrid or an electric car, while some others yet may be thinking of moving to an area with awesome public transport and stop using a personal vehicle altoghether.

Actually I'd not be interested in the things you mentioned whatsoever.

Would an analog setup with volume and GR metering, 2 Pultec EQs, 1 Sontec Mastering EQ and 1 Fairchild 670 tube compressor/limiter improve your situation? (cost being irrelevant)

I see no interest in going back to analogue, so even though my business could fund these things, something like the Fairchild would be of no interest at all. I have no idea what a Sontec is/does and as for Pultec EQ - this kind of stuff just isn't what we need or would benefit from.

I get the idea that many people would sell their souls for this kind of equipment, but my priorities if money was no object would be totally different. Your friend who wants the data hasn't realised we all have different needs and aspirations.
