An important realization has been reached: that audio is be one of those areas where we seem to have reached the practical limitations of progress.

Rock on guys. Rock on.

They seem to be solving problems that exist only in their corporate mind. From their website: "Getting rid of cooling fans and big heatsinks in mains powered applications, or, extending battery life in portable applications has turned out to be very difficult.."
