Recording Studio Owner: The Hammond B3 organ is one of the greatest instruments ever created for performing rock and roll music. No attempt to replicate its complex series of electromechanical and vacuum tube components has ever succeeded at capturing the true depth of the B3's tone. In fact, despite vintage organs' weight, bulk, expense, and complex maintenance requirements, top-tier touring musicians often take vintage organs with them on the road. Clavia's new lightweight and portable organ, designed to replicate the B3's characteristic sound is, therefore, destined to fail in the marketplace.

All of the following repeat some element of the Recording Studio Owner's flawed reasoning EXCEPT:


A) No golfer has to date beaten Jack Nicklaus' record of winning eighteen major championships. Tiger Woods will therefore also fail to surpass this record.

B) Professional cyclists demand that their bikes carry only the lightest of components. Any company attempting to sell a racing bicycle using cheaper heavier components will struggle to sell this model.

C) The Beech Staggerwing is one of the best handling airplanes ever built. Designed in the 1930's, it utilizes simple mechanical controls. Modern airplanes, relying on electronics and sophisticated automation, cannot produce such a profound experience of flight.

D) The new generation of winemakers has been rediscovering the simple techniques of the old world. This means that they will soon produce vintages every bit as good as the legendary bottles that lie ensconced in the cellars of astute collectors.

E) The legendary Linn Sondek LP12 turntable still rates in listener tests as providing the best sound quality of any turntable, even after 36 years! Newcomers such as the Roksan TMS2 have no hope of beating this classic, and would-be innovators are best off sticking to other products!
