It's not that I'm on to something, it's something that I have not voiced. This is one reason why having the listening position facing a corner rather than facing a wall has often benefits playback quality. I've done that over 20 years ago.

If one really has to listen in a double blind test with each test track longer than a minute to decide what is desireable, then the difference has no significance to an average user. Rather, it is more beneficial to find the type of music that will help make the difference more noticeable within the first minute of listening.

I have spent lots of time learning how to listen, and detect where more improvement can possibly be applied, room, speaker, or electronics. I think anyone with a passion for better sound reproduction would benefit from this kind of self training. But the desire for better reproduction must be stronger than trying to compare who or which is better for one to hold a steady course on improvements.

After voicing by ear, I took this from my listening position. Despite the looks, it doesn't sound bad.

Not sure if I should equalise. I dislike sibilance.

Thanks for the link ZilchLab

a Geithan quasi-co-axial speaker would be interesting to have for comparison of the polars too.

That is "slightly" falling?

I posted the "better link" on other forums.

Here, the subject is waveguides, specifically.

You should be feeling pretty good about how these independent third-party measurements substantiate what you have previously posted here, Earl, and I am pleased to finally see the verticals.
