Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Ultrasonic Nonsense, speakers, etc. What do you guys think?

I talked to two people in the high end audio field that don't believe in the ultrasonic hype in high end audio. I was told that that those so called add on supertweeter, tweeters that extend past 20-25 hertz and those in loudspeakers are really not giving you "more information, i.e. ultrasonics on recording". Most mikes rarely go past 20 on the top end and some ribbon types not past 25. Interesting some very high speakers don't go past 22.5 on the top end are are very expensive and highly revered such as, Wilson, Rockport Technologies, Martin Logan, etc. Makes sense, if most mikes, 99% don't capture info / ultrasonics, than what is the use? In theory it sounds great but in practice it just does not pan out. What about those direct to disc lps, recorded directly to the lath, no tape, probably still limited by the mikes. Crazy. What do you guys think. Makes sense huh.Ger
