yes Father Christmas and his laugh - It used to freak me out but I must have got used to it. The podcast has a live element with irc and I suppose he has to keep them happy also. As mentioned they did a companion piece some time ago. I am glad some here have found the podcast interesting. Twit TV has a number of interesting podcasts ( why oh why call it Twit TV. maybe I dont get it but "Twit" in the UK is an insult? )

I just watched the podcast and what seemed like a useful idea was measuring near-field as well as listening position to see how the direct sound compares/ contrasts with the room sound.

And I know what he means when he says some cinemas are simply too loud when playing adverts, trailers and films. The modified X curve seems like the way to go to tame the overall sound.

Sad geeky but true answer: the network of podcasts was started by Leo Laporte on the back of his "This Week in Tech" radio show / podcast.

So Paul Hales returns to give a second look at sound science where he openly admits that sound science is in its early stages and still is inhabited by myths

"With so much more to discuss than we could get to last week, host Scott Wilkinson continues his conversation with Paul Hales, founder of Pro Audio Technology. This week, he explains why he believes that audio science is relatively unrefined, leading to lots of dogma, misinformation, uncertainty, and inconsistency. Next, we dive into immersive-audio systems, including the importance of multiple subs, sophisticated bass management, and speaker directivity. Also, we talk about measuring sound pressure levels, answers to chatroom questions, and more."

Interesting thread and listen.

Here's a question: Do any readers here give much credibility to the Bang and Olufsen "sound lens" technology? I went to a demo once, and have read about it, and they maintain that the technology allows the lens on top of their high end speakers scans the room (with a radar like system) and calibrates the speaker accordingly. It, supposedly, takes in and accounts for room dimensions, furniture and so on.

I know their kit is more for aesthetics and not generally given much credibility with audiophiles - but it seems like an interesting approach to take rather than an external EQ.

I thought the 'sound lens' was just a wave guide that B&O licensed from Its inventor Grimaldi?
The Beolab 5 does have an inbuilt microphone I believe.
