Rockwell is to photography as the folks who insist FLAC sounds different from WAV despite identical checksum and playback equipment are to audio
In photography circles, which is his primary industry, he's almost universally considered a joke by non-Nikon users, and largely considered a joke by Nikon users. I won't begin to guess at his "credentials" to review audio equipment are considering the complete fiction that makes up most of his coverage of his real industry. It's more of a rant than a review. Why Woo has his quote on their front page at the moment is thoroughly confusing and disturbing. Woo's much better than that quote would lend one to think.
