In the latest article to appear in the Archives, Robert Harley comes right out and asks, "How many of you actually read the 'Measurements' sections of Stereophile's equipment reports and understand what's being measured, and why? I suspect that many readers skip over the technical assessment of the reviewed product and make a dash for the 'Conclusion.' "

Remain in ignorance no longer! All is revealed in one of the most important articles written on the topic to date---Harley's "Quality Lies in the Details." Harley goes through each of the CD-player and digital-processor measurements that Stereophile considers important. Included are several special sections on decibels, output impedance, and the mother of all test devices: the Audio Precision System One.
