Spot on. And there are ways to dampen the sound on a moderately loud bow. The good news is that more mfg's are working on sound dampening as part of design.

I took off all my 'latest / greatest' noise reducing monkey turds and tied up some cat wiskers from jig skirts; I even put some on the cam strings.. little small ones. I'm sure I dropped a couple fps off but probably just 1-2.. still plenty fast. Like you said though... sound is definitely faster and it's that 'umph' of the limbs that move the most air even if whishper quiet to us at the bow. There are quiet a few recording on you tube with audio from the target perspective of the arrow, but they also caught the release of the arrow and it's evident even with the strings quieted.

totally agree with the above input as well.
