Well, maybe we need new measuring devices to confirm what that most sensitive of transducers, the human ear, can perceive.
Early digital recorders, measured in terms of analog performance, were 'perfect', except that they sounded terrible. I think it was Ed Meintner's work, who identified and reduced jitter, that started to make digital recording sound more musical.
If there is a hearable difference between P48 and direct powered mics, and it can't be measured, then either Erik and his fellow believers are deluded, or the measuring devices and procedures are inadequate or defective. I'm betting on the latter, not because I've had Erik psychoanalyed, but because that's how it usually plays out. Sensitive musician types are always in the vanguard of progress in audio reproduction, and without them and sympathetic engineers and producers, we wouldn't have had the rebirth of tube mic electronics. After all, who needs a tube if a transistor measures better, is more reliable, and is cheaper?
