Blind Listening Tests

Filed under: AV question — Amie C @ 12:12 pm

Ian Colquhoun and Andrew Welker are in the Axiom Blind Listening Test room for the first in a series of videos – maybe four or five – on the topic of blind listening tests and their importance to acoustic research. We’ll also focus particularly on when it is important that a test is done blind as opposed to sighted.

Ian: I thought I’d start with just a bit of a history of how I was introduced to double-blind listening tests. It dates back to the early 80s when I first arrived at the National Research Council (NRC). They had a room set up there for the purpose of conducting double-blind research testing. They’d been doing it for quite a few years and gathering data on questions like

Sneak Peek into Axiom’s Current Research and Development

Filed under: News — Tags: , , , — Andrew Welker @ 2:13 pm

We have some exciting new additions to the Axiom Electronics lineup. As many of you remember, about two years ago we launched a very successful series of amplifiers that are configurable from 2 to 8 different channels.

We’ve had a lot of requests from customers who are moving back to stereo speaker setups (partially I think because when we introduced the LFR1100, many people started to listen to music in stereo again, and really enjoyed that set up)

Axiom’s Newest Speaker: The In-Ceiling M3

Filed under: Uncategorized — Andrew Welker @ 4:28 pm

Axiom’s newest product is the M3 in-ceiling speaker.  It’s a dual solution-oriented product: you can use it anywhere in your home where only an in-ceiling speaker is going to work with your decor, or you can prepare yourself for the most exciting development in home theater in years: the imminent release of Dolby Atmos, which requires in-ceiling speakers to add height channels to your surround sound experience.  The M3 in-ceiling is perfect for both applications:  it has high power handling, balanced linear performance, and good bass so a subwoofer is not required.  It’s an audiophile’s dream in-ceiling speaker.

Outdoor Speaker Placement

Filed under: Audio Knowledge,How-To,Stereo,Uncategorized — Tags: — Andrew Welker @ 3:51 pm

Today’s topic is Outdoor Speaker placement.  There are a variety of options available for placing them, and some things you need to keep in mind when you are positioning and mounting them, because outdoor speakers, depending on the environment,  may not work the same way as a pair of speakers in your living room or home theater.

Let’s take a screened-in outdoor room as an example.  This is an environment that is as close as you’re going to get to an actual enclosed room.  You’ve got boundaries: you’ve got a rear wall, you’ve got side walls.  You’re going to get reasonable sound reinforcement from those boundaries.  This helps with bass, as well as sensitivity and efficiency (or the perceived level of the speaker for a given amplifier power.)
