Sound Science - Loudspeaker R&D at Harman

The American artist Andy Warhol once said that everyone will eventually have their 15 minutes of fame. The closest I came was being on the cover of Test & Measurement magazine in November 2004. OK, admittedly T&M is not exactly People Magazine, but  1 or 2 pocket protector-wearing test engineers may have noticed the cover while shopping for a new digital oscilloscope or multimeter.

The title of the article is "Sound Science: Musical tastes differ, but tests show that listeners respond with the consistency of spectrum analyzers to loudspeaker performance."

The article explains the science behind loudspeaker R&D at Harman International and is written in a very approachable style for the audio layperson. You can read it here.

  1. I finally took the time to read this. It's insightful and has aged well. You have really stuck to your guns through the years. Have you continued with the Audio Precision and Listen products?
