All About Sound, Part 12

This is it. The final installment in the introduction to sound technology from Scott Janus' book "Audio in the 21st Century" (courtesy of Audio DesignLine).

In Part 12 he writes about Measuring Sound Quality, Harmonic Distortion, Total Harmonic Distortion, and Signal to Noise Ratio. I'll probably want to cover some of these topics in a little more detail in future posts and discuss how these measurements are applied to the technology in our products.

I hope you enjoyed this series.


  1. Outstanding, this series would be a great reference for the AVS Forum crew.

  2. Matt-

    Yeah there's a lot of good stuff over at Audio DesignLine. There are a few other places where you can find articles about sound theory. I hope we can make Ampliozone a good reference as well by including the links to these articles and providing a few articles of our own.

    Thanks for your comments.
