i know that you're a member of the A.E.S.,everything you wrote about listening tests for the purpose of assesment of louspeaker to find which kind of measurements had true correlation with
the subjective human perception of sound made a lot of sense,i gues that you use good ancillary electronis to drive the speakers...
Knew that M had to be an electrostat before I read the text :)
It would be interesting to drive a conventional loudspeaker system with a preceding EQ that simulated the M frequency response. Although this wouldn't help/hinder the directionality issues, I wonder if some listeners wouldn't key into the response and start raving about "transparency that only comes with small moving masses" etc.?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
