Glad you posted this link Pokey.  Very helpful discussion by Dr. Waldrep.  Thanks.
This guy has been preaching this stuff for years. There is some sense to what he says with some topics but he is stuck on numbers he can measure. He also comes across as the ultimate authority and focuses on narrow themes that fit his paradigm. 
What is with the hiss?

How about using modern analog! Has he tried using noise reduction? Dolby SR is incredible.
