The rabbit hole goes deep. The following is an earlier post of mine copied and pasted from one of the previous ISCT threads.
Doing a quick search for ISCT, UpperCut Audio, Roland E W Mucke will give enough links to keep you busy for a few days.
This is marketing, and he's pretty good at it, if you consider blanketing the internet with searchable terms and images to be good marketing.
A quick search shows he's been active at forums like this one, parts express techtalk, home theater shack, canuckaudiomart forum, usaaudiomart forum, audiokarma, audiocircle, as well as others. He has his own UpperCut identity as well as a number of sockpuppet accounts.
He's also advertising on :
- facebook - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710953813
- twitter - https://twitter.com/uppercutartists
- deviantart (in a bunch of different categories including this one) - http://uppercut-artists-pro.deviantart.com/
and a whole bunch of other social media outlets covering everything from speakers, fashion, photography, artography, artist promotion and other stuff.
These are specific ads for his speakers.
and there's more if you search.
Don't be fooled, this is a massive marketing campaign. Posting in forums like this gives potential customers results if they do a search for his products, although I'm sure these forum discussions haven't gone the way he's wanted them to.
The ridiculous names (like ISCT) that he gives to existing concepts (like translam) and his insistence that he can't find anything that exists similar to his products despite months of searching (like the sealed and vented speaker which is by definition a bandpass) is all marketing.
