Exactly that's what is there in rob watt's presentation, engineering, measurements and technology.I don't care who works for which company and designs what.
When a device seems to be properly engineered and measures the way I think is good and the price is in my target range I am fine with it.

Even if the measurements are good ?It's engineering, measurements, and technology designed to fool you into believing that what is there has actual value and will improve sound quality.
Watt's technobabble is particularly potent for those who have a vague understanding of things like dB, jitter, and harmonic distortion, but haven't yet dived deep enough into the topic to see past his nonsense.
And how will they verify that it actually performs as intended? How will they measure this?
I don't want to go through his presentation. I'm asking you how you discern the same eq profile applied to the chord vs somewhere further up the chain.
You are claiming you can tell the chord is superior. I want to know how the phase and distortion effects manifest in your listening to other eq solutions. Mr Watts is doing his job.
Distortion and phase issues. Unlike simple volume control and normalisation EQ works differently. I would suggest you to go through rob watts presentation.
It will show perfectly acceptable measurements I am sure- nobody is doubting he is a competent designer of products (though the white noise blast reports are troubling). But so do most products that get measured here.Problem with most audiophile is that they think they are only right. Why don't you try chord mojo 2 yourself ? If at all measurements are not important beyond a limit then what is the use of this website. They should not make any ranking based on sinad. It's very easy to discount anyone without proving him wrong specially when he is there with clear reason logic and explanation. Wait till mojo 2 is measured.
To be clear: no one is doubting that the Mojo 2 will produce competent measurements. Great, even!
What we are doubting is that the performance claims that I mentioned, which Watts is using to market and price his products, hold any merits at all.
