Editor’s Note: The following piece was written by Jason Stoddard of Schiit Audio as Chapter 5 of his ongoing work Schiit Happened: The Story of the World’s Most Improbable Start-Up, which I highly recommend reading in its entirety. “The Subjectivist/Objectivist Synthesis” struck me as being relevant to many discussions we have here on AudioStream shedding much needed light on the middle ground. Jason was kind enough to allow me to publish it here in its entirety. Enjoy!
