Trust me, I am a Hi Fi Reviewer ! ( Part 3 - Boring Technical Bits )


You CANNOT ignore the BORING TECHNICAL BITS !

I know that you just want to listen to a CD,
and you do NOT want to know about the BORING TECHNICAL BITS,
but you have to
( if you want to buy the BEST Hi Fi equipment, at the LOWEST PRICE ! )

I will give you a few examples, why TECHNICAL BITS are important !


 
 
 
Example 1

How can the reviewer test the "bass slam" of an amplifier,
by using speakers like LS3/5a
or Quad ESL 57 or Quad ESL 63,
that CANNOT produce LOUD DEEP bass ?

The reviewer should use BIG speakers
(not electrostatic panel speaker)
to check the "bass slam" of an amplifier.

It is obvious when I tell this to you !

Unfortunately, you only need to read a few reviews,
to find MANY reviewers making this simple mistake !

Can you see why we need to get a bit TECHNICAL ?


 
 
Example 2

A speaker with a LITTLE BIT too much bass
will sound impressive to an inexperienced reviewer (and some experienced reviewers),
who will give it a good review.
 (              Unfortunately, some customers will complain of too much "boomy" bass,                )
( after spending hundreds of pounds on a pair of speakers, after a short audition in the shop ! )

A speaker with a LITTLE BIT too much treble,
will produce a lot of "treble details"
and inexperienced reviewer (and some experienced reviewers),
who will give it a good review.
 ( Unfortunately, some customers will complain of the "harsh treble", wrongly blaming it on his CD player, )
(       after spending hundreds of pounds on a pair of speakers, after a short audition in the shop !             )



Obviously,  we need a better way of reviewing speakers !

Reviewers can buy "Clio" measuring equipment for a few hundred pounds,
If used intelligently, "Clio" will produce frequency response curve,
which will tell the reviewer and his readers, if the speaker has a LITTLE BIT too much bass or treble !

A speaker with a UNEVEN frequency response curve is NOT HIgh FIdelity,
because it will make some musical instruments sound too loud,
whilst making other musical instrument sound too soft !

A speaker with a "flat" and even frequency response curve shows promise,
and MIGHT be a good speaker (if it pass MANY other test)

A frequency response curve
will identify badly designed speakers.
but is NOT a guarantee of quality !


 
 
 

Reviewers and Technical bits

2 important questions are :-
"Does the reviewer know anything about TECHNICAL BITS ?"
"Can the reviewer explain TECHNICAL BITS in a simple manner that you can understand !"

It is pretty obvious to me that
MANY reviewer have very poor knowledge of the TECHNICAL BITS.
( and I am sick to death of their technical mistakes )
( and their constant "flim flam" about "subjectivity" )



There are a FEW reviewers with excellent knowledge of the TECHNICAL BITS,
but they always make it difficult for the reader.

 For example, most Hi Fi people would say things like "10% distortion",
but knowledgeable reviewers like to write about "-40 dB distortion",
which will confuse most people !

So if you are a knowledgeable reviewer,
please AVOID making the TECHNICAL BITS even more complicated !



I am pleased to report that the excellent team of "....." in Hi Fi Choice reviews of
speakers says thing like .... speakers has distortion of ...% in the midrange at ?? watts.

I hope this excellent teams review will make people 
STOP AND THINK ABOUT
"If these speakers has ...% distortion at ?? watts,
does it matter,
if my amplifier has 0.01% distortion or 0.001% distortion ?"

TO BE CONTINUED
Sorry, I will have to find the Hi Fi Choice article !
