Wish the guy knew a little more about his topics before asking some of his questions.

That's true, but it was neat to see a pic of Bob with his Mom when he was a child as well as to see the MacIntosh graph of his coffee can (PL) amp specs~

You know, I think the interviewer did know the answers but was playing dumb. At the beginning I didn't think he did, but there was something he said in the sonic holography section, but I can't remember what it was, that made me think that he caught on just a little too quick.
