I love them as well dude. and FFT waterfall plots really rock my boat.
God I love a good graph. There are international standards commonly applied in the electronics/audio industry. Is this what you are after? Have a look at this for a start. A-weighting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A-weighting is the most commonly used of a family of curves defined in the International standard IEC 61672:2003 and various...

My doctor has told me to avoid seeing Joy Division's 'Unknown Pleasures' Album cover if I have taken a Viagra.
... and we now know how What Hi Fi conduct their blind tests. What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision - Blind Tests "All review verdicts are agreed upon by the team as a whole - not an individual reviewer. Each product will be listened to and/or viewed by several members of the test team, who will then discuss the final verdict before it appears in the magazine or on the website. This avoids any individual bias creeping in." A bit of fun, and not to be taken too seriously.
Its a good question. My system was hissing the other day. I assumed my valve pre amp had bust a valve (again) so I swapped all the valves one at a time and it was still doing it. I thought I was going nuts, I couldn't find anything wrong. Turns out the power chord wasn't pushed fully into the power amp. Doh! the cause for hiss I think wikipedia have something about it, apparently some white noise picked up by radio /TV is leftovers from the big bang. If you're into the...

Sound and Vision - Blind Tests It looks like you have a response from the consulting editor. What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision - Blind Tests I cannot see anything about blind testing in the link. I won't say anything else as its probably not great ethics to pass comment on another thread . "All review verdicts are agreed...

I think we are actually more or less agreeing with each other here. Do you notice when...
Quote: Originally Posted by Leny A qualified 'yes'. Qualification: if changing a large item (such as a sofa for example) then there is a perceptable change to response via speakers. However most racks are very similar in size and shape and I would be very surprised if swaping like-for-almost-like would make a noticeable difference. I believe that the two racks would need to be very significantly different in size for it to have any effect at all due to...
Quote: Originally Posted by Leny Shark_Jump, virtually all analog electronic components are susceptible to vibration, although most are at such a low level as to be not noticeable. The components most likely to be noticeably affected are vacuum tubes and record players. Agreed, though this would be limited to Record Players, CD players and valves yes? And only when listening through speakers (not headphones). Quote: Originally...
I am on the opposite end of the funk dial on this one. I don't happen to think of old Major Tom as being in the groove, but he did look kinda 'Thumpadelic' in his 'Ashes to Ashes' clown suit.
