Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Heard any of Boenicke's speakers? nt

The problem is that no one can audition everything. It's probably a BIG reason Stereophile has the min number of dealers policy because there are simply way too many companies out there and there has to be a weeding process. In other words can the company actually remain established such that they will be around say in 4 years should you need warranty work?

And this is important because sound should not be the ONLY consideration when buying gear. Dealer and manufacturer support, resale value (or even the ability to sell them at all), build quality, aesthetics, ease of drive are just some of the reasons to include in the buying process.

I live in Hong Kong - there are a lot of things I can review but they are not available in the US or Canada or even the UK so what's the point? I think I was the first person to review Line Magnetic but they have a US importer. Still at the time they were an unknown.

The Chinese speakers look similar but I have not seen the inside.

The poorer measurements don't necessarily put me off - IMO SET amps sound the best and without equal and they measure the worst.

Pair matching is important if you want the left speaker to sound like the right speaker.

I have never really liked speakers with side firing woofers - the fancy explanations never really seem to work very well when I hear them. I have liked a few like Gallo and Studio Electric that worked but neither I would call integration champs.
