Measurements, a Poll
« on: June 12, 2022, 07:05:25 AM »
A poll to see how people honestly feel about; do specifications tell us how a component will sound?

The poll is simply to gauge what music lovers feel. Comments most welcome.

cheers

Measurements are necessary to to assure you have a properly functioning circuit but I feel there is a big different between ‘measurements’ and ‘voicing’.
I do not rely on specs to tell me how a product will sound.

This^^^ I feel they matter some, but they are not the end-game.
