    I feel like its pretty well known that the Harman consumer target response for over ear was conducted using the HD800S, but how did they determine the preference target when it came to IEM's and loudspeakers? I would assume that different fields would have yielded different results based on the...

    Harman curves sound different? (room x headphones x IEMs )

    The other day I tried comparing my main system with my in ear monitors. The main system is in my living room and I applied EQ to a target of a linear tilt following the slope simimlar to the most preferred response according to Harman's research.

    Wanting to trade my JBL A130 speakers for equal value items

    My testing is done and I thought to try trading these to someone rather than selling. I have no idea if this will interest anyone. (of course I can sell as well if trading doesn't work out) They are in excellent condition. I am looking to trade for similar retail value ($300) and not old/dated...

    RMAF 2016: Mark Levinson Amplifiers/DACs and Revel Speakers

    Note: my company is a dealer for Harman products and I am friends with some of the principles there. So please read my accolades with that lens on. I was so pleased to see Harman come to the show directly rather than sending equipment to their dealer to do the demos. The dealers were friendly...

    Are Our Preferences Different in Audio?

    It seems intuitive that we would all have different tastes in sound reproduction. After all, there are thousands of different brands and models of speakers each with a different sound. Surely that is due to different people liking different sounds. Another fact that bolsters this intuition is...
