In 2004&2008 copies of Stereophile magazine, JGordon Holt complained
that when Stereophile and other magazines like it ignored scientific procedure, their conclusions and brand of journalism became laughable. Bob Carver and his amplifier challenge, proved Holt's claim.

Measurements keep everyone honest about the viability of the products manufacturers retail to the buying public and helps perspective buyers to narrow the field when in the search for that new bit of gear.

Sometimes I just have music going when I'm working, other times I like a serious listen. You can be several different types of listener, each having its rewards.
