There is a “high end” Hifi dealer here in Sydney with a big reputation that you need very deep pockets to even walk in the door. I remember hearing about a customer that purchased a premium stereo system from them that included installation and they installed and commissioned it and handed it over to the proud customer with the speakers wired out of phase.

You seem to expect audiophools to have working brains... :-DD
You seem to expect audiophools to have any matter whatsoever in their heads...  :-DD

Since sound doesn't travel through a vacuum, one would hope there is something in there.

Don't think it ever made it to market, doubt it'd pass any EM compliance testing for that matter.
??? EM compliance?  Your audio frequency linear amp design emitted radio waves?  Or was it switching?

The remote control did, and I saw a prototype of that board and it was certainly a creative "revolutionary" design  :-DD

What about cheap audio foolery.. fake gold plating, steel copper ''polarized'' audio cables,  ... spatial HiFi/UHD RCA/SPDIF cables for blueray/4K or what not

 :palm:  Instant credibility vaporisation.


Tell me - who worked out the phase goof?

Presumably the first person who stood between the speakers and felt dizzy and wondered why there was no bottom end.

P.S. But their bullshit is priceless! "The digital roughening, importunity of the vocals disappears, the sibilant consonants cease to be emphasized, and the violins acquire natural melodiousness, getting rid of the increased itch-tickling "rosinity" characteristic even for very expensive digital paths."(c)google-translated advertising of their voltage regulator (simple circuit with (supposedly) TL431 and ancient germanium BJT).
