Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Magico speakers...

Well, see, now I've learned something. I had to look up "misanthrope". :)

I don't think Mr. Wolf fits the description, though. He's a musician, and his entire business is focussed on creating and building loudspeakers for people to enjoy listening to reproduced music. It'd be pretty hard to do those things if he had a disdain for people.

Here's a story: Back in '73 - '74, French trumpet virtuoso Pierre Thibaud was my trumpet instructor for a couple of semesters. I'm tellin' ya what, he didn't pull any punches. He told me flat out that my attacks were sloppy and not well-defined. He told me that I didn't have a good tone. Heck, sometimes, I'd come out of lessons thinking I couldn't even play the trumpet. On the other hand, he GAVE me two books of studies to work out of: The Balay and the Chavanne books, which I still have and cherish today. THAT, and his continuing to try to teach me, was the peek inside the man who, fundamentally, wanted to be helpful.

Ya see, some people are harder to get along with than others, but that doesn't make them a bad guy. "Consumed by their passion" is more appropriate. I know several people who fit that description, and can be a bit hard for some people to get along with, but they're still nice folks once they get to know you.
