No because he simply don't know what he's talking about. He's got some kind of ax to grind with Audyssey that clouds his judgement. Not the side of things you wanna be.
even though it is up to the mfg's, Audyssey is being disingenuous since there is NO company that has seen fit to do it the strictly correct way. until a company DOES build a product that does what Audyssey says is possible to do, they are making an excuse for the fact that no such product exists.
Bull, Audyssey licences a technology it's up to each MFR how to implement it, it's not an excuse, it's fact, and it's true to all third party licencing technology companies. Dolby DTS you name it. THX would be a different thing but for obvious reasons. What it can do can be studied via the white paper, there is no need for prototype to exists, unless you believe that they lie. If you do name your sources.
in my mind, if's similar to an auto mfg that says it can build a performance engine capable of 50 mpg but it's not their fault that none exist to buy. not quite the same but similar
Audyssey is not an OEM it's not it's purpose to build anything, which part is that not clear to you?
I'll give you 2 companies who are being "honest": Anthem & Trinnov. why?
1. while their receivers downsample, Anthem does build processors that don't with their ARC fully engaged.
2. while the Trinnov implementation in the Sherwood 972 does downsample, there are processors from ADA and Trinnov themselves that don't with Trinnov engaged.
in both cases, they will cost ya, but they are there to buy if you have the coin
It has nothing to with honesty, Anthem is an OEM, and Trinnov made a deal with another to produce a statement product, and aimed at a different market. These choices a business ones nothing to do with engineering.
If you have a real evidence to back up your assertions, please provide it, or you should really rest your case!Edited by thehun - 9/9/13 at 1:53am
