Richard Discusses Why Measurements Matter

For years Stereophile Magazine has published Loudspeaker Measurements.  This database yields a wealth of information if you know how to interpret these graphs.  In this video, Richard discusses the three primary measurements he uses to ensure his designs are neutral and meet the demands of Vandersteen speaker engineering.  You will learn why a step function is central to our designs and why it matters sonically.  You will also learn how to look at a waterfall plot and determine if that sound is for you and if your speaker is truly "quiet'"  This is also an indicator of the ability to convey the emotion of the music through the nuances and silence between the notes the gives the texture and rhythm intended by the artist.   The final graph presented is the impedance curve.  With this graph, you can answer the question, will my current amplifier work with this speaker?
