As previously mentioned, the criticisms are about the procedures and the conclusions drawn so far, neither of which depend on the research being finished.
Based on the PPT slides I saw, I would bet that Vertex AQ and Acuity Products has done their homework. If not, what would be the point? It must have been expensive to engage a top defense contractor who builds bleeding edge sonar equipment.
The point is to create buzz and word-of-mouth with fantastic-sounding claims. "It must have been expensive"? Are you speculating?
You asked about the isolation of the noise.
No I didn't. I explicitly asked for their measurement protocol for the difference signal. Without that information, the rest of their experiment is meaningless.
One thing Demian might have been pissed about is that the results showed the Linn Karik player to have tremendous distortion. I believe he may have been associated with Linn for a while but I am not entirely sure of that.
So if someone disagrees with you, and you can find no logical or technical reason to dispute their claims, you ascribe less than honorable motives to them. Classy as always.
And FYI, I know who designed the Karik, and it is not Demian. Also, you do realize that the Karik is just a transport? So I'm not sure how the 1337 military sonar specialist ninja dude could have conducted his tests on it.
