Why do we like the sound of analogue recordings when the measurements look so bad? Mark Serridge

Synopsis: Simple frequency response measurements were made on a range of sound reproduction systems including:

1. Compact Disc
2. Streaming Audio (MP3)
3. A vinyl record player

The measurements were then compared to a simple “blind listening test” involving a small group of listeners. Based on frequency response alone, it is clear that the measurements do not correlate to listener preference.

To deliver quality sound, it is essential to analyze the sound produced by your device during the development phase as well as ensuring the audio quality is maintained during manufacturing. A multitude of parameters are critical to authentic sound reproduction.
