    Re: RIP Dave Brubeck

    Spacetime temporal anomaly?
  2. Re: What are some dymanic driver/non-horn speakers that have that "jump" factor?

    You should consider whatever sounds best to you, regardless of whether horn, direct radiator, panel, etc.
    At low volume. That's not a terribly difficult scenario to recreate demo wise, at home,...

    Re: Hello from Naples, FL

    Hah, congrats on whatever it is :)
  4. Re: What are some dymanic driver/non-horn speakers that have that "jump" factor?

    It looks like a horn. The same way an electrostatic is "transparent", etc, etc, etc, etc. The ears only CPU has other hard wired sensors.
    You see?

    p.s. the typical coaxial speaker is very much a...

    You're dangerously close to Mikes candy shop
  6. Re: What are some dymanic driver/non-horn speakers that have that "jump" factor?

    Yes, people. Sensitivity, claimed vs reality. Years after said www. published measurements, people will insist otherwise. Reality had zero effect.
  7. Re: What are some dymanic driver/non-horn speakers that have that "jump" factor?

    Most horns use dynamic drives. What you are most likely trying to describe, are "direct radiator" speakers, i.e. non-horn loaded "naked" drivers like most dome tweeters, mids, etc...with higher...

    Re: Qobuz And Tidal vs Spotify

    Depends. *If* the same master is used, they should be indistinguishable. There is really no way to know that and in the case of Tidal, there is definite remastering with their "MQA" tracks, for...

    Re: Qobuz And Tidal vs Spotify

    I dropped all 3 for Amazon.
    Btw, Spotify (Premium) still isn't mp3 though it's the most well known and thus frightening bogeyman.
    Pretty sure all have free trials.

    cheers,

    Re: Subs for Ultra Fast Speakers

    For seamless acoustic summation, both the high and low pass electrical filters matter and more importantly, the physical spatial position of the sources. The latter being the bane of most separated...

    Unless you fell on top of one. That might hurt!!

    Loudspeakers can save the earth

    ...or maybe some coral reefs https://www.cnet.com/news/underwater-loudspeakers-could-help-restore-damaged-coral-reefs/
  15. Re: Avalon Acoustics - Are they still relevant/competitive ?

    One of the best sounding systems I've heard, local club member, uses no cabinet at all ! Drivers are pretty much free air.
    A bit like MBL.
  16. Re: Avalon Acoustics - Are they still relevant/competitive ?

    Properties like stiffness which can be good for things that you want radiating sound, like drivers, may not be what you want for things that you don't want radiating sound. Like cabinets. Engineering...
  17. Re: Avalon Acoustics - Are they still relevant/competitive ?

    You have confused advertising/marketing with engineering science.

    Nevermind it's "all subjective", whereas cabinet materials are objective facts. If it's the former, then the only thing that...
  18. Re: State of the art Speakers with ESS/AMT Drivers?

    Some MA speakers, like many others (Golden Ear, Adam, Wharfedale, etc), do indeed us an "AMT" "tweeter", usually >2.5kHz or so. They are all significantly different from the Heil, which is a true...
  19. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    I'm a 100% measurements/perceptual/science guy. 30+ years of correlating measurements and sound. My "view" of the data will be very different than yours just starting out, simply based on experience....
  20. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Very true
  21. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Susceptibility.

    Of all sorts. YMMV.
    No ASA here of course. Still comedy gold. :P
  22. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Lol. I see you enjoy science fiction as much as I enjoy comedy. ;)
    That was very funny, thanks!
  23. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Actually they are, in a more scientifically robust version than Archimagos.

    Re: Zu Audio speakers?

    What if they wake the dead?
  25. Re: What has the most audible impact in a digital HI-Fi set up after speakers, amps and DAC?

    Many other opinions are out of phase, so in the end they sum to about zero. YMMV
