    Default Stereophile Class Rankings

    Can anyone explain these to me? I couldn't find an explanation on stereophile's site as to how they classify a speaker as A, B, C, etc. Are prices taken into account? I have heard there is such thing as Class A frequency limited, which I am assuming means it sounds good above 100 hz or some other arbitrary freq. If anyone can explain this to me that would be great, and especially if you have a link to stereophile's own explanation of their rankings.

    edit: and I am officially a polkazoid, hahaha

    "Class A, the system must be full range-ie, feature bass extension to 20Hz. It must also be capable of reaching realistic sound-pressure levels without any feeling of strain. For those unconcerned about the last few hertz of low-bass extension, we have created "Classes A, B, C (Restricted Extreme LF)" for those speakers that are state of the art in every other way. Candidates for inclusion in this class must still reach down to at least 40Hz, below the lowest notes of the four-string double-bass and bass guitar."

    Congrats on your polkazoid status.
