Writing User Manuals - what to say or not say!
Thanks for the feedback. Actually, one of the problems of writing any sort of user manual is trying to answer basic questions with 'facts' to allay the new-user's anxiety, and balancing that against the reality that there are few real facts in audio.

I think I have them that sort of distance apart when I'm listening in my spare-bedroom study at home.
