Audio Precision drop

I think it would be cool to see a Massdrop - Audio Precision collaboration, for people interested in getting into making measurements of audio gear (either diy projects or purchased equipment).

How would this differ from the EARS rig by MiniDSP? https://www.minidsp.com/products/acoustic-measurement/ears-headphone-jig I've been tempted to get this one myself due to cost and there are plenty of people who own it (and have mods/insight) and a fair amount of documentation. I'm honestly not aware of a more affordable model that fits into the hobby category as proper measurement rigs are expensive and not really feasible unless you do this sort of thing for a living (i.e. a reviewer).

I have read that the MiniDSP EARS have issues. But I was thinking more in terms of measuring amplifiers. Although a headphone measurement rig would be neat to see as well.
I'm all for this. It would make people realize how hard it is to get measurements that are even remotely comparative and also reveal the futility of comparing measurements from different setups (no folks, it's not as easy as plug and go).
