There it is: in your opinion, should you use both measurements and listening when designing and building audio equipment? Yes or No....

He might have been referring to the pole carrying his telephone wire.

I'm not certain this is a sensible question. Almost everyone, apart from the loony fringe on both sides, will vote yes but this does not mean that they all agree. So in a few days time we can say that 97% (or whatever) believe that both listening and measuring are important so this is the end of the debate? I have decided not to vote.

I dont see how one could design anything if you didn't get some metrics for future reference. For communication equipement various modified rhyme tests are done to determine audiobility.

I don't know. Telegraph poles here in the UK don't carry names (Polish or otherwise).

I'm pleased to see that our new moderator has just realised why we are pulling his leg. I was a bit concerned before his edit to post #6 - surely moderators have to have a HUGE sense of humour in order to cope with us lot?

I wouldn't worry about Tony- we've been toughening his ego by repeated beatings.
