    Audioholics goes off the reservation

    I remember feeling vibrations on the table top, no matter which dampener was being used, if that helps. Exactly. And I brought it up in case people weren't aware of what the phrase is actually referring to. Some people could care less that a group of people were relieved of their land, forced...

    Who needs physicians nowadays. Anything you want to know about medicine is available via Google, and you can easily get medical advice on internet forums.

    Amplifier Bakeoff: Purifi Eval1, McIntosh MA252 & Benchmark AHB2

    To save me the trouble of reading all 6 pages, was the trial data posted with basic statistical analysis? Edit: looks like the answer is no. I mean even an entry into the junior high science fair requires SOME data.

    Very well, I'll update what I wrote, thank you.

    Audioholics goes off the reservation

    Also, I’d like to point out that the expression “off the reservation” is offensive to some Native Americans. @Spkrdctr

    Audioholics goes off the reservation

    I generated waterfall plots for a couple of vibration isolators, including a product from isoacoustics. Short version is that there were definitely measurable differences. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/effects-of-2-vibration-isolation-devices-waterfall-plots.14743/...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Like the Genelecs, the B&W 800/801/802 speakers are fairly linear on-axis. The BBC dip comes from the off-axis response, where the large 6" midrange starts to roll off faster with rising off-axis angle. It seems like a common error here to attempt to characterize the overall FR of a speaker by...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    I think the same could be a said about a lot of things - if we just had more data and infinite analytical resources. But so far, as I think you're confirming, it isn't possible to predict blind wine tasting preferences based on chemical analysis alone, except to perhaps exclude wines that taste...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    The B&W 800/801/802 (which are the ones commonly used in studios) all have a very similar BBC dip and overall response, even from generation to generation, at least for the past couple of decades. More importantly, any B&W 800/801/802 is going to be closer to the mastering engineer's B&W than a...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Thanks @RobL for finding this. Here's what Toole wrote: "I agree that close mic'ed recordings can be problems, and if they are, it is an indication of differing tastes (or hearing performance) between the recording staff and the listener, or, equally likely, monitoring through spectrally colored...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    To clarify, are you saying that the blind taste preferences of wine can be predicted based on chemical analysis alone? Or are you saying that chemical analysis is used to make decisions during the winemaking process?

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Thanks for clarifying what you mean by "accurate" because the word means different things to different people (unfortunately its denotative meaning is not as universal as one might think). Here's the issue: When we use this definition of "accurate" to refer to solid state devices like DACS and...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    I wonder if that has something to do with it. I had experimented with adding a BBC dip to my genelecs too and had some good results. This would explain it.
