Understanding Audio Equipment Specs

2016-01-27 - Hauptwerk Technical

Are you mystified by audio specs when you're looking at buying audio interfaces or amplifiers for your Hauptwerk instrument? Have you ever wondered why it's so confusing?

The good news is that you're not alone. While there is definitely a technical element to selecting audio equipment, often times you're confused because of misleading specs. There's even a term for it. It's called "specsmanship".

I attended a great seminar recently called "What the specs don't tell you... and why" by Jonathan Novick. Jonathan has had various roles with audio standards organizations and with the Audio Engineers Society (AES). He gave me a youtube link to an identical talk he gave earlier.

It's a relatively technical talk but, for those of you so inclined, it's really interesting and illuminating.

Pretty cool. Right?

Having watched this video, what other questions do you have about specs, shopping for gear etc that we might address?
