最近重讀 47 Labs 的老闆 Junji Kimura（木村準二）的文章，記錄他設計旗艦級 CD 轉盤 PiTracer 的思維。其中這一段，寫到他不斷提醒自己打破成見，嘗試各種新的可能性，說得真是好極了：
To prove the 80% of intuition, you have to make it into an actual form. You can't draw a schematic with an intuition, or choose the parts. The electrical parts are basically standardized and come with certain limitations. In other words, you don't need to wonder around too much there. However, to design a mechanical part by yourself is a different story. Your past experiences can be an obstacle. We tend to be conservative when it comes to our own specialty. When somebody comes up with an idea, you can counter it immediately with 10 different reasons why it doesn't work! This happens with every profession and we can't give birth to something new without overcoming this phenomenon! That's a warning I gave to myself while designing PiTracer.
我對 Altec Lansing 一直頗有好感。十年前念高中時，常到雙連韻順唱片找CD，店裡正擺了一對 Altec VOT (Voice of the Theatre，劇院之聲) A5 號角喇叭。韻順老闆在店內常常用這對喇叭播放稀奇古怪的唱片，那時我對音響涉獵無多，卻對 Altec A5 寬鬆舒暢的聲音有深刻的印象。後來在黃智鈺的拓樸音響（當時尚在和平東路梅花戲院附近）聽到單端管機推動 Altec 號角喇叭，聲音也是酣暢自如，毫無拘束地開展。然而 Altec Lansing 這些 VOT 系列號角喇叭，已經停產多年，如今價格高昂，不易入手。即使有幸得遇，以我的空間也難以塞入如此大型的喇叭，甚且我對動圈式全音域單體有更多喜愛。於是，Altec VOT 喇叭對我而言始終「可遠觀而不可褻玩焉」，只能「敬而遠之」。
