Soundguys.com - How do you guys see their articles? Do you find them worthwhile?

Hello,
Been reading on and off articles from Soundguys.com. I tended to find them quite informative (mostly in regards with headphone reviews), until I stumbled upon this and this. I'm not a very versed guy when it comes to audio technology, but I do know the theory, so some details in those articles really scratched my retinas.
So, have you followed these guys? What's your opinion about them?
Thanks!

PS: I avoid disclosing too much of my opinion for fear of influencing the answers to this thread.

Looking at your second article there are a few errors since the author doesn't fully understand how a DAC works, but skimming it I think it's a reasonable, if slightly confused summary.

The part about aliasing is for ADC not for DAC. DAC deals with already digitized record and it doesn't create any aliasing. Why is it brought up in the 2nd article is unclear.
The last paragraph about bitrates is also irrelevant to the topic and isn't really accurate too.

I guess there are not too many readers of Soundguys.com around here...
Anyway, I was pretty disappointed that a site that seems to be an opinion maker for many mainstream users can cram so many basic inaccuracies in the short span of 2 articles... (they are a sister site of some big Android site, probably part of a network of sites)
