    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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.

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    You need to look harder and quit bashing product lines that don’t share the same design philosophy as the ones you carry in your shop. You also might want to observe how other vendors here on ASR are very graceful and respectful of competing products and manufacturers. (But if you feel the need...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Your 3rd bullet point (circle of confusion) is perhaps the most important. It’s what prevents a single loudspeaker from being “accurate” for all recordings. This is especially true with classical music, where we know a lot of recordings are mastered with B&W monitors. Which begs the question of...

    LOL fine but not a perfect parallel example (since your evaluation wasn't based on wine "measurements") but I'll roll with it. Also great example. Even when wines are tasted blindly by incredibly experienced experts, there is STILL marked variation in wine rating scores for the exact same...

    Thanks for taking the time to compare. If you can never prefer the sound reproduction of headphones over loudspeakers, this isn't exactly a fair comparison. I'm curious if anyone else has a pair of Genelec Ones (any model) and a pair of HD800 headphones and would like to compare these two...

    For some people here, if you told them you really enjoyed a glass of the 63 Lafite, but they found out that the pH/temperature/sugar measurements of that vintage were poor, they would tell you that you don't have good taste in wine.
