RE: such an odd dichotomy

"Why would you worry about "traditional" measurements?"

Please don't misunderstand - I'm not worrying about them. I'm just pointing out that the industry has come a long way since 1970, and that new measurements and techniques are an evolving aspect of science.

I remember back in the early 1970s, as an audio/acoustics student, when John Meyer (now meyersound.com) and Bob Minor let me push the "do it" button on the Tektronix digital 'scope, and we'd capture a few milliseconds of output from a prototype loudspeaker. For better reliability, they'd take an average of 8+ tests. Time-gated loudspeaker measurement later became the norm, and now have even become available to the average audiophile. Here we are, 50 years later! Lots of water over the bridge since the '70s!

The moderators feel that allowing this thread to continue, even though it may hold useful information, will wind up creating more trouble than it solves, and thereby detract from the purpose of this forum.

This is not the appropriate venue for discussion of this matter, and we ask that those with an interest in the subject, take it elsewhere (e.g. private e-mail).

No further follow-ups will be considered.
