    Yes, you are right. And I understand you're surprise and concern. it was easy to figure out who he is from his posting and his promotion of immersive sound. He has also identified his ethnicity elsewhere on this forum. If I am wrong, I'll accept whatever consequences follow. I think witchdoctor may have much to offer. But the way he has chosen to do it is, imo, misguided. I've made plenty of mistakes here myself. So we'll just see how this shakes out. Sorry for the confusion and unpleasantness.

    I'll wait for Chris C. to weigh in. I may have crossed a line.

    Don't know if it is apprriate to come out and say it.

    He worked for Yamaha for a number of years.

    Do you have any past or present affiliation with Yamaha?

    He has published research on immersive sound, has done research with people like Sean Olive, attends international AES conferences, where he presents research and moderates panels. He is a researcher in the field. I would be curious as to how some of his research is funded and if there might be some conflict of interests regarding some of what he promotes. This is not an accusation, just a concern. He did promote on at least 2 threads a recent immersive audio event at AES in which he was a presenter, but he won't acknowledge this. I find his posting behavior somewhat baffling for a pro. If I'm crossing a line here, let me know. But this seems like one of those situations where hidden identity is being abused.

    Is the approach, particularly the tone of your posts here, similar to how you presented and handled questions at AES this weekend? I would guess that you behaved like a different person. You are not even addressing the technical issues that are being raised here.

    I can hear a difference between the 2 statements, but a healthy skepticism suggests a possible expectation bias since the poster is named. We need to establish proper conditions for blind posting. Acknowledging that, I'd consider adding something to the second statement: "a tendency to become addicted to ever more extravagant aesthetic gestures".

    Yes, I appreciate that. It is a legitimate concern, although highly unlikely to occur, imo. My concern is that your posting is directly related to your professional interests and status. It is not simply a hobbyist perspective. You have a professional investment in what you advocate and a career that could be impacted by it.This raises some questions about your objectivity. So I think your transparency is in the best interests of this forum, and quite possibly in your own best interest as well. Perhaps you would consider disclosing something of your professional background, training, affiliations and interests without revealing the details.

    Thanks. In the interest of transparency it might be helpful for you to acknowledge your own participation in this program, your affiliation with AES, and your professional institutional affiliation, which may include what you refer to as "Witchdoctor studios".
