    Fascinating discussion on time alignment and the affect of moving the drivers around. Read the footnote for more info.

    Interesting comments indeed: “To begin with, there’s never been any scientific proof that time/phase coherence improves perceived sound quality.”

    The time alignment view operates on the assumption, that the original music source emanating from speakers is one-dimensional, while it is not. Basically everyone admits, the best musical experience is a live performance. In such situations the band, and even more so an orchestra, sits tens of meters apart. That does not seem to spoil the experience.

    In my experience Trinnov, Dirac, and similar approaches to correct phase and impulse response in the digital domain result in significant audible improvements. I highly recommend people give it a listen before ruling it out.

    The purpose is not to somehow reposition individual instruments or musicians who are physically apart, but to ensure the wide-spectrum reproduction of individual notes is time-aligned. For example, ensuring the low and high frequencies of a single wide-spectrum percussion note, or the harmonics that are characteristic of an instruments unique timbre, will all reach your ears at the same time.
