Reading tests and spec sheets is a pedantic and misguided means to great sound.

Yep--but that's the way it generally worrked<g>.

I was a lieutenant/platoon leader in the FRG at the time, and the guys had great access to top of the line audio equipment through the military PX system at outrageously cheap prices. A room in the barracks might have three different sets of $800 speakers in it and amps capable of pushing 100w/channel with >0.05% THD. So they listened to them on headphones--if you actually cranked up your system past a watt or two in the barracksm the first sergeant would confiscate it til you learned how to live with others. (theory of contraints again: buying a system for specs you'll never experience is not the best use of disposible cash).
