Duh. I can feel the wind from the hand waving through my computer. His 'explanation' says nothing. There are questions about design that can be seen and in the specs. And his explanation about mass is simply nonsense. It's not mass but power to weight ratio(otherwise a VW beetle could out accelerate a Bugatti).
But then again the 1st thing a company needs to do is stay in business and all too often it's not what you do but what you say you can do and convince the public of. Just look at the Bose 901. It couldn't even do what Amar claimed it did.
Citing a patent is smart. It implies something new. But patents can be deceiving. A good example is the Dahlquist DQ 10. The patent had nothing to do with the acoustic performance of the speaker. It was the inexpensive way the individual panels were attached to the main box and the 'patent' caused significant ringing at 115 Hz.
I'd love to hear the speaker. If it turns out I'm wrong I'm not against saying so. In fact if it is that good it would be great to have such an advance. I hate making comments like this without an audition but this ad asks for it.
Has anyone done a REAL speaker sensitivity test on these?
Yeah, it's weird. Eric makes great speakers, so I don't know why he needs the bombastic marketing.
Too often hype sells and the truth doesn't.
Some feedback on these speakers
Even if, after auditioning, these things I agreed with the feedback(probably not exactly likely) that wouldn't change all the BS being claimed.
We will have to wait until we listen to them at one of the shows before judging them.
And I even grudgingly implied that. And perhaps it will be a very good product. But that won't change my opinion of his current hand waving explanation of how things work and some of the other claims like over 98 dB efficiency and 20 Hz lower bandwidth.
Usually when something sounds too good to be true it is too good to be true.
