the Calrec Soundfield Mk4 in the previous millenium and TetraMic in this. Why don't you have a look at the ambisonic.info page even if you have no intention of listening to the sound samples.

BTW, the 'perfect mike' has nothing to do with "thinnest diaphragm" and other Golden Pinnae sh*t. To define the perfect mike, you specify what it needs to do .. not what's inside.

That's OK. Just means we can't put it in a proper Blind Listening Test. Damn! Just told everyone how to avoid putting their favourite speakers in a Blind Listening Test

Will I shock you if i say that none of the movements you mention was very new to our old ears on a musical point of view ?
Punk was just dirty 'Garage' Rock'n roll from the 60s played with no grove by bad musicians, more a literary movement than anything else, on my point ov view. The kings or the Who had done that so long time before....
All was said by Kraftwerk about New wave orElectro.
Rap or Hip Hop appeared in the middle of 70, my mystake if it was hidden in my "etc..."
And was-it new ? Spoken texts grooved with some funk background music ? Samples ?
I ask myself the question... I'm probably an old fart...(no smiley here, please)

What does any of this have to do with electronic design? Also, what does it have to do with audio design? Could we drift back to the general topic of audio electronic design?

What automobiles have to do with audio? Yet you were happy to chime in on that subject.

I know I'm a pain, just sayin' though.

I am willing to chime in on ANY subject, but going back to the intended topic is important too.

Did anyone actually hear the new JBL monitors at the AES titled "Big Sound" in Small and Medium Size Rooms"?

It is impossible. If I specify what I understand as "perfect" as a consumer nobody can do it in any millennia. What I cal "perfect" (as a designer and technologist) means optimal, limited by laws of physics and state of art and technology, and available resources.

Please don't confuse anymore sh*t with technical parameters.
