Audiophiles tend to fall into either the measurements camp or the listening camp. Not unlike politics, the debates that ensue get downright contentious. Personally, I’ve never felt the urge to define myself in this way. I like more data, not less, and therefore, when I’m compiling info to base a buying decision on, I prefer to consider my own listening tests in conjunction with a set of comprehensive measurements. Where the positive results from both tests converge, I tend to find my contenders.

Rather than adhering to a diehard belief in the benefits of one criterion to the exclusion of the other, my perspective aligns more towards being skeptical of both: 1) I don’t believe measurements tell us everything there is to know about a product; 2) I also know that my hearing—and my assessment of the results of my listening tests—are fallible. To me, having both is really a system of checks and balances.
