Voodoo Audio = crap science, wasted bandwidth, and splatter.
Its seems voodoo audio is about using the maximum amount of bandwidth with the least audio intelligibility. Trying to squeeze10 pounds of audio sausage
into a 2 pound sausage bag in a analog domain system is the height of technical stupidity. Its seems that every time I hear one of these ESSB/vood audio practitioners
they they only ones in the engineering world who seem to think that placing most of your voice energy below 1khz, is smart. They the only wants who think that they can somehow by twiddling knobs all day take audio content above 1khz and mysteriously package it into a audio bandwidth below 1 khz. Even with my SDR radios that can receive 20khz of bandwidth they all sound as crap and unintelligible as you can imagine. So to pass this flawed experimentation off as a scientific endeavor is a lot of nonsense. Its mostly ignorant people trying to do the impossible and causing a lot of splatter and consuming of bandwidth for no good outcome. If you want high quality audio use AM or use digital voice or DRM. Thats what the professional shortwave broadcasters have all adopted. They dont transmit super bassy audio and claim that its more intelligible contrary to every available study of human speech patterns.
These ESSB/voodoo stations are obnoxious qrm'ers that dont deserve respect because they are not carrying out science experiments. They carrying on endless knob twiddling that passes time and nothing more The practice of ESSB is pure ignorance When ESSB can make a S1 signal more intelligable in the noise then I will sit up and take notice. All I hear now is a practice that does everything that makes the human voice more unintelligible than anything else besides sound effect machines that make you sound like darth vader. Its the art of practicing pure and utter technical crap.
and nothing else
Considering that the bands are often empty I don't see any issue with people running ESSB or AM for that matter. The people who enjoy ESSB seem to have fun. It's a hobby, so why bother getting worked up about it?
While many crank the bass, it's not as bad as the overuse of the speech processor that many SSB ops have turned up to 11 as a matter of course. Listening to them for 5 minutes is enough to give you a headache!
