HARBETH: Alan Shaw in conversation with Howard Popeck

Hello Alan and thank you for finding the time to respond to the following question: Why is there such diversity between audiophile values and the audio engineering establishment’s values? “This can be explained by an almost total lack of appreciation that physics – basic high school physics – governs every single aspect of audio bar […]

From their User Group: We’ve all been tempted. The idea of saving a few pounds by buying something from someone/somewhere that we know shouldn’t be selling it.
