The test set-up

Contents

 width=

The new reference system was used for this test. Where applicable, a cable was replaced for the test. The pads were tested separately. We kept the set consistent where possible, only the Ethernet cable served for all tests.

We were able to conclude at the end of the day that the new setup with the Pass Labs and the TAD speakers allowed us to accurately hear what happens when you change something in the signal path. We listened first and measured later. The playlist we used. This was put together to properly analyze precisely nuances in the dynamics and in the depiction of a stereo image.
