This is a video version of Ethan Winer’s workshop “Lies, Damn Lies, and Audio Gear Specs” from the October 2013 AES show in New York City. Panelists are Ethan Winer, Mike Rivers, Scott Dorsey, and David Moran. This video explains how the fidelity of audio equipment is assessed and measured, and is an offshoot of his book The Audio Expert.
“Ethan is my new hero. There is an incredible amount of snake oil in the audio industry. Acoustics are mainly straight forward science that can be measured and expressed in scientifically accepted units.”
