It's just parroting the same BS story over and over. The folks with $15k-$30k to spare for an AP buy it for one reason - to establish authority, usually false authority, instead of using it as a tool for discovery, learning, and real science. We've already seen how Amir fucked up on this early measurements and needed Jude (presumably with AP's assistance) to school him. I'm not saying the AP stuff isn't great. It's fantastic actually. The UI, ease-of-use, and speed of the AP stuff is amazing. However, it's like what I've always said, it's the man, not the machine. To be honest, I did not expect the results to be so similar as seen above. It always seems to come to this: same guy and exact same piece of gear = same or very similar result. Conclusion: the SGD1 DACs that ASR got were different than the SGD1 I have in my hands right now.
