For professor and the contains I would give 5 stars this is for the engineering - acoustics. The issue instead of being resolved is growing for years from course to course. When I regulate the volume to make a professor's voice comfortable loud, a signal in the beginning of each lecture is blasting my ears. It is so unpleasant. Why can not a new lecture begin as an academic lecture- a professor starts talking? The signals are not needed, tasteless and pointless, additionally they are as high volume as bad commercials. The beginning graphic is agley and unneeded too, yet it at least does not cause eye pain as much as the volume causes ear pain. Courses improved by not including the applause (it was totally silly, like a sound from a bad comedy) yet this beginning volume is really something that bothers listeners. I love the great courses over all, listen for decades, yet last year less and less due to the worse and worse acoustic production. In the beginning it was classical music, this new signal is much worse and on higher volume. It should be an exercise for a begging acoustic engineer to regulate volume of the signal to be not higher than the volume of the lecture (if the signal must stay....)Why are you torturing your listeners like the worse TV stations do- the are blasting volume of the commercials in similar way. Please stop this practice Please stop this practice. Please visit a real university and see how a lecture begins in the best academic tradition.
