Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: good measuring speakers

Yes I agree - certainly house sound and the product having their own voice (typically) such that regardless of room you are still hearing the speaker's character. Analogous to having someone playing a violin in your living room, and your bedroom and your bathroom - you still aren't mistaking it for a cello.

Magico I have heard only 4 times - The best I heard them sound was with Technical Brain amplifiers and that was impressive. Unfortunately, Technical Brain while they sounded utterly sensational apparently have (or had) an issue with reliability.

I think perhaps my problem is I send out some mixed messages - I have certain generalities but then several examples that are exception. Similar to English grammar.

I looked up my dagogo past commentaries but when the website changed we lost several articles.

As you probably know what my general preference is for HE/SET. But I am not tied to that absolutely.

I had a list of ten favorite systems at CES (all of which I would be happy to live with) back then and Magico/Technical brain was one of the ten in the over $10k priced systems. I also had a sub $10k list. Everything was based on the price of the speakers.

Here was my list to give you an idea of the varying types of stuff I like - to be blunt I should probably be called a speaker slut.

Alphabetical order (under $10K)

* Audio Note AN-E/Spe HE Loudspeakers
* Gallo 3.5
* Harbeth Super HL5
* Kingsound Prince II Electrostatic loudspeakers
* Reference 3a Grand Veena
* Sonist Concerto 3
* Sonist Recital 3
* Studio Electric Type Three Loudspeakers
* Wharfedale Diamond 10

Rooms with speakers above $10,000 (alphabetical order):

* Acapella High Violoncello II
* Acoustic Zen Crescendo
* Audio Note AN-E Sec Signature (They had two rooms at the show)
* Magico/Technical Brain
* Perfect 8 Technologies (The Force)
* Silbatone Aporia Full Range
* Sony SS AR1 loudspeakers
* Teresonic Ingenium loudspeakers
* Trenner and Friedl RA Box
* Usher Be 10

And at the next show CAS 2012. The best five rooms I picked in alphabetical order.

* Acoustic Zen Crescendo
* Focal Scala Utopia
* MBL 101 (and the 120) E MK II Radialstrahler
* Von Gaylord "The Return of the Legend" speakers
* YG Acoustics Anat III Studio Signature

So speakers: Horns, Omni-directionals, Narrow baffle (Floyde E Toole school), speakers with metal tweeters, ribbons, electrostats, hybrids, low efficiency, high efficiency, single drivers, lots of drivers, fat and skinny
