I can't speak for @killdozzer , but I can speak for myself.\nI would hope that if Dr Waldrep came here, anonymously or not, he would find a welcome bunch of enthusiasts that appreciate a knowledgeable opinion. Nobody will agree with him, or anybody else, 100% and some of those difference of opinion might be strong. That's no different than anyone else that wants to be an "expert opinion".\n\nI looked at the website you included when you first mentioned his name. If you think he might get an unwelcome reception based on some of his items of interest, I am not so sure he would. Lots of people here on the AH share HD audio as an interest, multi channel immersive audio as an interest, and other areas on his pages.\n\nI differ in what I listen to and how I choose to listen to it from many of his articles, but I find no fault or need to be critical. He likes different stuff than I do, but many of the AH folks I trade posts with every day also like their music or formats different from mine.\n\nI would hope Dr Waldrep and anybody else that comes to the AH will have a great experience and exchange of ideas and interests. That can be challenging for some. Most people would find it worthwhile I hope.\nPlus I'm almost certain that if Dr Waldrep were to post here he wouldn't do it with condescension and insults so I doubt much of a fuss would be made at all. I would assume the good Dr will know how to talk to people without triggering the whole group.
