Topic: Lies, Damned Lies & Specifications
Specs are important. Every product has them. Lots of
time and money are spent measuring them. People will base purchase decisions
Which spec tells you how a product sounds?
Is 10% THD way too much or just barely noticeable?
Why do some bad products have good specs and vice versa?
Why dont we measure audio products with music as a stimulus?
Why are datasheets for finished audio products so short?
Jonathans interactive presentation will take a closer look at the
world of specs including the art of specsmanship. Live listening
tests will be conducted during the presentation so that attendees can compare
real world performance to measured specifications for a variety of circuit
