A further explanation about Sound spectrum analysis. I will digress from sound but the priciples still apply. In the world of the medical examiner, people sometimes die from suicide /homicide be it from drugs, antiobiotics,pesticides.etc… your job is to determine cause of death from their tissue, urine, blood.etc… and you apply various analytical techniques using various instruments, but in the end the choice of instrument is the Mass spec, Ion Trap. These compounds all have a spectrum and you make an injection onto said machine and compare spectrum with known substances in your library. You can do a general screen or if you know what you are looking for you can be specific. In short it identifies and confirms your suspicions. This is the instrument you want to go into court with, “The Bible of instruments” Sound too has a spectrum and sophisticated analysis as indicated a few posts above indicate copy is good as original. I indicated i spent yesterday comparing the spectrum of a song from Billy Gilman’s album ripped both conventionally and from standalone player. I picked obvious points and compared the properties and could not find a difference. There was a slight difference in ripping time, but other than that i saw no difference. I went further and cut and pasted left channel from copy with that of right channel from original and found no difference that was perceptible to the eye and characteristics were the same. I then reversed the channels and again found no differences. In short it was the same. But let’s forgot about all this scientific mumbo jumbo and i will digress again, but you will see the analogy. A few weeks ago i ate at restaurant that served “Bison”, their burger was “buffalo Burger”, the chili was made with buffalo and they had “smoked buffalo” with the usual salad buffet. My comment was "I can’t taste the difference between these items. I met the owner of the restaurant who has been around bison a lot longer than i have and told him my findings. He’s ben around bison for at least ten years and said he couldn’t tell the difference, except for a slight difference in taste when it came to the “buffalo burger” What I’m getting at is if we took these sunncomm executives and blinfolded them as well as me and said which is real and which is the copy copy. They sound the same would be the answer as well as my answer. This company is basing the fact that most people don’t have the knowledge to reverse engineer. They are also basing their hopes on that most people (Kids) don’t have access to a standalone/player/recorder.
