    Not to argue, but the BBC did test that extensively in the seventies and eighties. The result was that neither musicians, nor sound engineers have the best ears, but frequent live music visitors.

    Engineers suffer a lot from group bias and musicians are simply to deaf to hear anything.

    I'd already noticed that myself, about the engineers. Put a number of them together and it's very easy to get them to agree on anything when it comes to sound quality.

  • Royer ribbon microphones - Why?

    Simply put, when you put a quality ribbon mic on an instrument, voice, or other sound source, what you hear on playback is closer to real sound in nature than with any other kind of microphone.
