Well, in that case DSP, plastic speakers and big transistor amp make sense for them. In terms of sound, economics and practicality, that should work for them.

Since I listen to a very different type of music, in a different circumstance - different technologies make sense for me.

Well, you know me- guy with a guitar or four guys with stand-up bass, drums, sax, and piano. Hate that artificial crap with a passion, but I'm well aware that it's the vast majority these days.

Still, I'm not a big fan of paper cones.

I was told that Techno just about justified beliefs in slew rates . To state my thoughts . Slew rates are by ear correct . It is the current required to drive a VAS rather than speed . Techno is thought to require double of other music . PA amps usually can give the power ratings continuously . Some class D chips for TV assume 10% ( Techno 33 % if comparing ) . I have often looked at class D and thought something is not right over class H . The claims of heat-sink mostly . One needs a switch-mode PSU to make the comparison so as to get optimum efficiency from H . For real life don't bother . The switch-mode will get you through compatibility regulations quicker and cheaply . Class D when used in PA is mostly about weight . Increasingly it is used . Some dislike D as repairs are often more costly . A lot of MOS FET PA amps only ever needed new outputs . Sometimes done on a gig . It was put them in and see if it works . A back up or two ready to use in the rack . C-Audio and HH come to mind .

Don't remember seeing one directly, but I get your meaning. I do remember working a show with the band "Living Color." Vernon Reid had racks and racks of processing for his guitar. We asked him, "Hey Vernon, what's all that stuff do?" He said, "I don't know - they just give it to me and I play thru it. Sure looks cool!" And it did look cool.

Yes, I know. And I'm not a big fan of plastic or metal cones. We pick what's least offensive to our own ears.

If to draw small analogy that, now especially often music is formed in devices which are incorrectly constructed. And then is reproduced on other curve devices. As a result we have too most, as in case of a double translation from one language on another.
