  1. Re: 2020 Stereo Floor-Standing Speakers To Consider For $7,500 To $15,000

    Actually, you have more expertise than anyone here, as to what pleases you audio-visually most. You may just not realize it.

    cheers,

    Re: The ideal speaker?

    Maybe with an "ideal" speaker, those type parameters are not fixed, but variable. ;)
    The shape, intensity, correlation and timing of polar responses, all adjustable, for both room and music type,...

    Re: The ideal speaker?

    Understood. Yes, my guess just looking at the small cropped pic of your room, a high directionality speaker would do well. There are DSP speakers that can "Play backwards" so to speak. Or get a...

    Re: The ideal speaker?

    That's not a DSP speaker. Thats a conventional speaker with an onboard DSP subwoofer. It has zero ability to change its polar pattern to highly forward direct radiation, like the horns you prefer, in...

    Re: The ideal speaker?

    It's no better/worse to do, what is effectively, sound power EQ at the front end or at speaker. Net result is you can certainly improve tonally (and somewhat, timbre) of recording, good or bad, to...

    There may be no hope then
  8. Re: How do you feel about the proliferation of Class D in high end products?

    Nice, how long have you had? I think it actually has presets iirc, so you can just touch a button with a slight HF and or/bass boost contour for bright recording and instantly becomes listenable....
  9. Re: How do you feel about the proliferation of Class D in high end products?

    Well then, you're obviously not a true subjectivist. One who has to know a mountain of objective metrics like current, op amp, power supply, price, weight, copper purity, sample rates, what grade...

    Yep. Well, of course Phil is retired. He could clearly have gotten something like the 20.7s with his budget. Haven't heard these yet, but while having some similarities, they should also sound...

    Very cool Brad, like how you apparently wrapped the veneer from each side over top of sub. Yes, I listened in last Sunday, it appears Phil has gone to the Dark Side - dipoles, cardioids, lots of...

    Hmmm, has seen some "KLH" cone n dome boxes recently, didn't realize KLH was that much back. https://klhaudio.com/model-nine-electrostatic/

    Re: Freya + VS. ARC REF 3?

    A controlled subjective test (like via my ABX box) "measures" only what is heard. By ears. Nothing else.


    True if one either never measures, or measures the wrong thing (symbiotic). Note, Caltech...

    Re: A question about MQA

    Nice false dichotomy. Every blind test I've performed on audiophiles was them listening to/enjoying music.
    But I fully understand why audiophiles avoid them. Trust ears/just listen? No way! ;-)
  20. Re: Quiet audiophile rooms can drive you crazy

    Hmmm, I thought your post was pretty good! (it shows up in emails for thread responses). We rely heavily on reflections to sense "space"...along of course, with vision.

    Luckily not with the sound waves, the only thing a few care about, including myself and also luckily, totally demonstrable and verifiable. Just like the Caltech (et al) link. 100% agree on all the...

    Re: My Take on Magnepan Speakers

    Nicoff, it should hardly be surprising that a manufacturer uses same drivers throughout lineups. Especially when they make said drivers! The latter being far rarer than believed.
