Not so much. There is more to the science of audio than engineering and physics. There are ways to measure emotion, expression, etc. They are subjective-reporting for the most part, but they are measurable. Even the logarythmic scale of measuring loudness, audibility, etc. are based on subjective measurement. Any attempt to rely on one discipline of science vs. another is not objective. But man, that's a heck of a lot of work and studying! Anyway, the science of how electrons flow, frequency response, volume-matching etc. is serious stuff, and most likely completely accurate. But add the science of perception to the mix, and it's something else entirely. The electron- stuff is solid and reliable, with the added benefit of being replicable and predictable. The perception/mind stuff is still in its infancy. Hence, these endlessly amusing debates that give me a decent distraction from the science and practice of addiction treatment (the therapeutic side, BTW). Which is even younger than the perception stuff, and even more full of voodoo than audio hobbies. Anyway, back to it guys. This is fun reading!
