A few weeks back Dr. Bose, the founder of Bose Company died. In a few days Michael Fremer, the industry “reviewer” posted the following post.
When I received the link to this post from a site visitor and saw the name of the author and the subject I instantly knew what the post will be about. I was in target with I would say 95% accuracy. ***
The poor Michael Fremer can’t escape himself and he milks his brain with insulting predictability. On surface the Mike’s post is kind of out of ordinary. One of the main rules the industry play is that the status quo people never talk bad about each other. If one industry person would be found in zoo, wearing SS uniform and rapping a monkey then next week TAS would publish an article that wearing back historical suits from mid of the 20 century improve the soundstage depth and having sex with other then human spices minimize the perception of surface noise. Still, Michael Fremer who fancy himself the big time industry player does criticize another, this time dead industry player. Sound absurd, right>
Well, not really. From the industry perspective Dr. Bose committed a sacrilegious sin, the worse possible sin imaginable in that stupid industry – he refuse to share. Those who do not know the industry reality, who are naïve, uninformed or stupid have no idea how much the industry punish if a participant refuse to share. Dr. Bose did refuse but he was strong during his life to keep the pubic hair bugs like Michael Fremer to stay away from his interests. Now, the idiot Fremer, discover his balls and make some kind of public appearance profiteering on Dr. Bose’s death. What however, the Fremer forget to mention was no matter how bad Bose audio sound it still sound more potent then 95% of the crap that Fremer patronizes and endorses.
As Dr. Bose dies he left after himself a successful corporation, a great example how to marker audio to uninformed masses, a great legacy how to make money on audio and the fear of any industry pimp to criticize what Bose did. When Fremer dies he will live after himself a fart in air, a full storage of stolen audio equipment, the universal hate of any single persons who kissed him in the ass during his career and the legacy of how to brainlessly pimp audio industry.
