ExtremeTech started to use RMAA for testing

ExtremeTech, a part of ZiffDavis Media holding and the well-known hardware and IT resource, announced the review of three new Hercules soundcards. For the first time, they used RMAA instead of the very expensive Audio Precision System One. Here what review makers say:
We wanted to try out the RightMark Audio Analyzer (RMAA) benchmark because of the speed with which it can gather its test results. It looks at the same types of signal quality measurements we normally make with the Audio Precision System One, and produces repeatable results. Other sites have been using it for some time, particularly in Europe, so we decided to take it for a test spin.

The complete review is here.

RightMark Audio Analyzer is the independent audio measurements open-source project, developed by iXBT.com.

The test suite performs various tests of electroacoustical performance of sound cards and other real-time audio devices. Testing is accomplished by playing the test signals and recording them after they pass through the testing chain. A user can browse through and save the test results. For those unfamiliar with technical side of measurements the software provides a mark like "bad", "average", "good", "very good", "excellent".

The source code is available freely for browsing and compilation. All the questions are discussed in the forum.
