I have no problem with why or how you are trying to get measurements. You are quite peaceful and I welcome anyone willing to talk level headed and not call owners names. To a certain extent measurements are useful, but I do not feel they ever currently give the whole view of something. It is taking into account objective and subjective matters, to form an opinion. I recommend you try finding a fellow member that has one and give it a listen. I do not have the equipment to properly do the RMAA tests everyone wants, so I unfortunately cannot help you there. Where are you from?
English is not my native language but I'll try to explain the way I look at the hard science, technology and objective measurements (audio technology) vs the emotion of music and the way sounds sounds differently to everyone.
Beside enjoying listening to music I'm also an experienced photographer. I you read photography or camera forums you will find similar discussion as the once in this thread. As an example. Leica makes a very, very expensive lens, the Noctilux. Technically it has many shortcomings: light falloff, refraction, etc. but somehow you can create very beautiful photos with them. With special looks. If you look at them technically you will find many "objective" mistakes. So what is more important?
BTW, I'm not saying the Tera Player can be compared to the Noctilux for having technical mistakes. I just don't know and don't care. I don't have as well trained ears as I have eyes. I would be interested in looking at the measurements. Not to base an opinion on. Just out of curiosity and to learn from.
Have a look at this website to see how scientific cameras are measured these days: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Ratings But a beautiful photo can be created with any camera.
