As to the measurements well I think those of us with the PF's knew all along they would not measure great and though I feel measurements obviously have a part to play they are not the end story and as is born out in the chaps thoughts the PF's are never going to be his sort of listening device and the inadequacies he mentions, faults and design are exactly why people like me love the sound they make!
I am biased though, As some may know I have a very strong dislike of the SS forum (aptly named!) as the folks who post there and who seem to love to demolish the emotional component of this hobby ( and I return to my old chestnut, music is emotion, not science!) with their graphs and opinions. The reason I am against so much opinion being based upon measurements is that a measurement tells only a tenth of the picture I feel. Mickey Fremer has it right with his thoughts about measurements, DBT's and ABX's I feel.
The only thing they prove which is a positive for me is that most people are human beings with soul and emotion and so are fallible. I learnt late in life that it is that fallibility where 95% of life's magic lay and I would rather live in a state of delusion than one of absolute fact any day!
So I will continue to be delusional and passionate about my love of the PF's. My feelings are open so folks can make adjustments on my thoughts of them to bring it closer to the SS viewpoints but for me these are the real deal and at last not since the Orpheus am I emotionally engaged on all levels once more with music through headphones.
