I have a dream, the dream about DPDP, just another abbreviation?

Well, people know my unhealthy love to “invent” the things and to grant to the “inventions” stupid naming conventions.

Guilty but do not care.

Here is another bright idea – the DPDP consept.

Audio people spend time socializing online, patting each other on the back and participating in stupid social interactions. Some of them know math, some of them know electronics, some of them know mechanics some of them know music, some of them can hear and some of them know how to hear and what to hear. Everyone have own flows and problem but as a composite awareness the accumulation if many’s people best is more able then the best capacity of a one. The problems is that the best in composite awareness need to be filtered out properly and correctly put in perspective with other best expression of singular awareness.  That is normal, everyone would agree with it and I do not think anyone would argue with it. Did you pay attention that it does not exist in audio?

So, I announce the DPDP time open. The DPDP comes from Distributed Public Design Project. The idea behind it that a singular audio task is allocated, let say it would be a creation of “perfect” compression driver, or a perfect power regenerator, or a perfect cartridge. Then created as dedicated integrative audio site where all people begin to contribute their ideas, knowledge, and experiences into propelling the design, implementation and testing of this singular audio task. No single person or group of the people owns anything, everything is wide-open and public. The only interest that everyone has is to find out how to make the perfect UPS device,  or a driver, or a cartridge. The project is professionally managed: with spreadsheets, with analyses of data, with cost-benefit analyses, with appraising of proposals and correlation of results.

I have no idea why it is not being practiced widely. If attacking of audio problems would take place via DPDP then the price of the solutions would be absolutely negligible and the quality of audio solutions would be astronomically high. Moreover it would address my personal interest: of the DPDP would be practice in audio widely then even the most retarded audio Moron will understand eventually that the army of the audio industry cockroaches may be eradicated as a blood-sucking parasite.

I have a dream…

Yes but how to do it

Weeks ago I had a long thinking about it and posted the subject : primitive steps for standard sound
I was thinking that  how can we shape a standard idea to cover a primitive sound and how to standardize it .
Well said romy we need these fields to cover up sound reproduction:
1-Electrician engineering
2-mechanician engineering
3-aero-acoustic engineering(for vibration and Noise acoustic)
4-Architectural Acoustic engineering
5-Acoustic Simulation Softwares for all above fields and someone able to work with them
6-Team workers for direct implementation (and try to keep brainless people away from it)

I can have a part in it if needed .idk about charges it takes for me
yeh it takes some of our time or maybe some cash to be spent on it but it definitely worth it.
we had enough of audio scum industry they bsed us big time ...

BTW the fun part is that such a team will hardly understand how to work on a shared subject of audio reproduction.
we need more guys to know what to hear and can recognize the whole subject idea and decide how to approach the subject.

John Borwick:
 "It is
a matter of some concern that the loudspeaker industry is in danger of falling into
disrepute. The intending purchaser of a drive unit or a complete loudspeaker cannot
rely on the specification. Virtually all specifications are free of any information
regarding linear or harmonic distortion and the result is a range of units with apparently
identical specifications which sound completely different, both from one another
and from the original sound. Almost invariably the power level at which the sound
is reasonably undistorted will be a small fraction of the advertised power handling
figure. The 1990s brought a brighter prospect when the falling cost and size of electronics
allowed the economic development of the active loudspeaker.
The traditional passive loudspeaker is designed to be connected to a flat frequency
response wideband amplifier acting as a voltage source. This causes too many compromises
for accurate results. In fact all that is required is that the overall frequency,
time and directional response of the loudspeaker and its associated electronics is
correct. What goes on between the electronics and the transducers is actually irrelevant
to the user.
The greatest problem with the progress of the active loudspeaker is that (with a
few notable exceptions) passive loudspeaker manufacturers in many cases do not
have the intellectual property needed to build active electronics and amplifier manufacturers
lack the intellectual property needed to build transducers. Manufacturers
of commoditized products regard a change of direction as an unnecessary risk and
tend to resist this inevitable development, leaving the high ground of loudspeaker
technology to newcomers."
