Default dissertation survey

Hi guys,
I need some facts and figures to help me with writing my dissertation for my Industrial design degree- I would much appreciate it if you could fill in the questionnaire located here: http://FreeOnlineSurveys.com/renders...6awwcsn0184567

It will only take a few minutes, and no personal information is needed.

Thanks very much, Matto

Hi Matto,

I just took your survey. I found it difficult to answer some of the questions.

#5 and #7 were the hardest for me.

Yes, the last question is very difficult to answer properly for anyone that knows about audio.

I agree.

I already thought I'd pretty much answer that question with question #7 but then I realised that Matt was probably trying to differentiate between looks and sound quality.

I've only heard one of the loudspeakers shown which didn't help things at all, so I had to guess the sound quality based on reputation.

I'm not sure if Matt wanted us to rank the items in question #5 in order of preference ie. 1 to 6 or whether he wanted us to rate them and be able to have 1 in a couple of boxes since they were equally important. In the end I rated them from 1 to 6.

I have checked the survey and it's pretty hopeless to answer if you want to be totally honest.

I also tried to participate...

Then the form refused to let me select equally "1" (highest importance) for each of these at the same time:
- Seamless stereo effect / imaging
- Bass response
- Low distortion / clarity

Similar "either/or" procedure with
- Sound quality
- Build quality / reliability

Since all of these are equally important to me, I refused to give any untrue answer and thus gave up. No answers from me then.

IMHO that's just about the way to get quite useless statistics...

regards

hi guys,

thanks very much to everyone whos filled in the questionaire- its only a small part of my research but it all counts. Ive had 44 replies so far and I only really need 50 so nearly there then i can get some form of write up done tomorrow

Sorry to those guys who got annoyed filling it out, i appreciate some answers carry the same importance for some people. The survey was just to get a rough idea of peoples views, I've got some much more useful information through chatting to some hifi retailers I know and a couple of designers working in this area.

Thanks again, Matto
