RE: Yes it is, but even better (for me) will be sound check

Hi Tom

Thanks again for adding to the body of horn knowledge, and for providing some entertaining distractions from looking for occult meanings and phantoms on the radar here.

Last night I attended the AES meet touring the facilities at he Old Town School here in Chicago. In a room full of platinum eared experts nobody argued, and nobody even disagreed with anyone! But nobody showed up masked either. This reminded me when you showed the Unitys at an AES meet back in 2007. The room used was difficult (to say the least!) and the bottom end was limited because you couldn't bring the subs, but the sound was very impressive. I brought a Stereophile reading friend with and even he liked it. It's interesting that while you are focused on coverage, there are some people going the other way. That same friend took me to a Magico demo at one of the local audiophile salons sometime back. The Magicos were in a heavily treated room and they had a very narrow one-seat sweet spot! My friend seemed oblivious to this, even after I asked him if he has ever heard half of the CSO disappear if you moved one seat left or right! My friend was still impressed with these one seat wonders however, and wanted to go back for another listen later. I heard the Magicos at the last Axpona here and they didn't have the one seat wonder effect, so I have to write it off to the room treatment and set up.

Richard Heyser was definitely one of the heavies in audio. One of his interests was the similarities of the paradoxes in the quantum/macro worlds in physics, and the paradoxes between what we hear and measure in audio. Doug Jones made Heyser's notebooks available online and I printed several out, but it's rough going trying to read Heyser's handwriting, and making corrections to make it a readable text. Hopefully some day these notebooks can be made into a readable book. I'd be happy to contribute what little I have.

And thanks again for the horn continuum concept, I had kind of thought of this, but you got there first by putting it into words here. And oh yeah, I've had to eat my pejorative comments on conical horns after hearing yours, but I'm not going to thank you for that lunch ; )
