Hmmm - "an audio guru"? Just to quote what the editor of "The Audio Critic" says about him:
"The most influential, and at the same time, least qualified writer on digital audio (among other subjects). He got his job at Stereophile by winning an essay contest, for crying out loud! There seems to be no evidence that anyone asked for his academic/technical credentials. His blunders on the test bench and on the printed page are the laughing stock of degreed engineers and academics; he has been skewered and punctured both in print and face-to-face so many times that he resembles a sieve; but he keeps plowing right ahead with his flawed tests and reviews - and his published and editor let him! He appears to believe every half-baked tweako cliche ever put forth, and in his case I am almost certain he is sincere."
So I wouldn't necessarily cite him as an authority, myself...
