    Don't talk about decibels.... Let me just scream

Ok that's it.

    I don't like the way the N504i implements decibels!!!  It sounds weird and makes no sense!
And its not documented anywhere I can find.


    Why don't we talk about some other more fun unitless quantity.
Is Viscosity unitless...  I think so ... and its more fun then decibels.
Or is it Reynold's number?  No its probably Reynold's number.
