Yes, for sure, he was doing the right thing and trying to get to the bottom of it.

It's the people who spout nonsense as gospel that get me on my high horse.

Mind you, we can all be wrong from time to time -- and that's why it's important for us all to check our facts -- and remain open to contrary points of view.

FWIW, I'd love to hear the original theorist's rationale for how playing mp3s could degrade a monitor... (I mean, beyond normal wear and tear and compared with a non-Mp3 of the same material.)
It's people like that who think because they're mastering through garageband and they borrowed their mum's iPod speakers that they make beats and know everything about this field that we know and love.
