Forum contributions
AH, Tantris and US have published very extensive texts in various forums, some of which I would like to link here. The contributions are older but still up-to-date!

(German) Article by AH, Written 28 August 2000 - 09:48
Very comprehensive presentation of the requirements for neutral interception conditions
(German) Thread: Requirements for neutral reproduction of sound recordings and their relevance in practice
A very controversially discussed thread regarding neutral playback

(German) Thread: Diamond tweeter at B&W
