Out of Phase

Ever wonder how things sound when you get your speaker wiring wrong? Take a listen to Adam Curry’s Daily Source Code for September 19. Don’t listen on headphones…it will sound normal. Instead, listen on your desktop or laptop speakers–where the distance between the speakers is the same or less than the distance to your ears. Move your head a little from side to side and you’ll hear how very strange it is.

It turns out that Adam had a cable wired out of phase, and he’s corrected the problem in later editions of the Daily Source Code.
