Series 16 Episode 13: Real vs. Tech

This week on The Gadget Show, Jason and Ortis had to see if they could tell the difference between the most cutting edge tech and the real world. Pollyanna tested the very impressive Hoverwing, Jon was getting super fit as he was testing the very latest Electronic Workout kit and Suzi was checking out the best of the web with her Top 5 Websites.

Many thanks to everyone involved in making The Gadget Show possible.

Loved the feature of the hifi v live performance as this is the real test of any audio system. The Steinway Lyngdorf Model D music system is the only audio system I know of that consistently fools even the most demanding listener into thinking they are listening to live music. The best example of this was in Moscow where Steinway & Sons pianos were played back to back with the Model D music system to an audience of over 500 regular classical listeners. Even the Director of Music was unable to tell the live from the recorded music until the pianists left the stage.

Your audio tech v live performance was rigged in favour of the live performance. Two speakers are needed for stereo, but there were no instruments and only one singer..... of course two speakers are going to sound different than one voice. A single voice should have been compared with a single b&w speaker, not two speaker.

I agree with Hassan's comment. As well as it being a recording of a lone singer you only used one microphone so when played back through two speakers it would give the illusion of two identical singers at different positions. I can imagine that this would have given rises to areas where the outputs interact to boost or diminish some frequencies. I would have liked to have seen the singer perform close to a lone speaker to get a fairer test. Thanks - Gregg (London).
