    I've been doing some reading on the K System and was curious to know if this system has become industry standard yet (or will in the future?). I really like the concept. I've noticed a few mastering plugins out there are offering K-metering (K12, K14 and K20) features as an alternative to DBFS.

    I'm interested to hear if this has/will be adopted (widespread) in the industry, or are we still in the throws of the "loudness war".
