JWB, we're happy to to provide you with your very own forum to moderate at Stereo Central, if you'd like.

Well I'd like to get in there first at least. I sent in my membership a few hours ago but it hasn't been approved yet.

I was just thinking - My life would be so much easier if I just gave in and sucked up to people, but I refuse. I'm not about to let some fucker from Sony tell me I'm deaf. How about NO!

I read the entire sh.tv thread and I don't see any reason for JWB to have been banned. Was there a post that they removed?

JWB is reinstated and Steve is asking for a wider opinion...

JWB - congratulations on the shortest sh.tv ban (that I know of anyway ...)

Don't go back. I regret it more often than not. What's the point? Threads degenerate so quickly now...

Someone could post "Say, what's the best version of 'Southern Accents' on CD?" I know most of you think this is a ridiculous question, but hey, I like this sort of thing. The first response will be someone saying "GET THE RECORD." The second post will be someone remembering how he bought the record when he was four. The third post will be someone saying "that album sucks, go with Hard Promises." The fourth post will be the first jab against the remaster and the Playback box. The fifth post will be the first unkind comparison to Roger McGuinn. Et cetera.

Look at the Tug of War thread.

As much as I've had urges to re-open the Snakepit, I'd still rather not. Can this be taken over to SC?

Dude, any thread about Tug of War deserves to turn into a pile of shit.

Ok. I just finished reading the entire thread. I'll be honest in not knowing Rob's official capacity over at Sony. But if he doesn't want to be bothered with a layman's opinion, then maybe don't visit an audio enthusiast's site?

I don't care if Rob is the CEO over at Sony, there's no reason for such a knee-jerk reaction, much less his condescending attitude. Even if his posts are generally grounded in fact, it doesn't give him a single excuse.

Although, you certainly don't need to be a mastering engineer to perform a null-test either. And it certainly hasn't taken many credentials to have become a Peter Mew, or a Steve Hoffman etc. But then, do many of these engineers really make excuses for their limited knowledge in audio/digital theory? In particular, the mission statement, and 'facts' supported and consistently reinforced over at Steve's forums are sometimes quite embarrassing.... just the recent thread on jitter alone.

Otherwise, if a null-test proves these discs identical -- or even just fairly identical -- then Rob owes JWB a *huge* apology.

He owes one, all right:

I'm not an ELO fan, but Caiger seems to be a good authority on this. This is FTM's website: http://www.ftmusic.com/join/join.html

So in the end, they are the Mew discs with tweaks?

And did Palmaccio do a version that ended up on the shelf? If so, why?
