Hi, a **** poor article, not worth watching, rgds, sreten.

It just states the bleeding obvious, with no insight whatsoever.

It offers a good margin for the manufacturer, the distributer and the dealer! Everybody's got to eat.

Funny about the nearfield monitor tweeters at the mixing desk. I'm a live sound engineer and always found that studio guys mixed way too bright when they had to do it at a concert. They are so used to the details and finesse of those little nearfield monitors. You just don't get that in a big space, away from the speakers.

Is that it? I thought it was still loading, then it came up with "Play again." I was expecting to see a in depth review on what goes into them etc. But no, throw in a few big words and that's your lot.

Easy, easy, guys No big deal.

I agree the footage is not complete, or even not very good. However, what do you expect to get from a 'newspaper' for ordinary readers (audience)?

Much worse information, or even plain lies are floating around in each and every possible media.

In this short video, at least you got viewpoints from recording engineer and speaker maker. The conclusion seems unclear for a whole picture, but "it is impossible to recreate the sound of an orchestra in your living room" should be quite clear.

By contrast with those braggings of advertisements or blind reviews, this is almost lovely

Obviously.

That won't come from the speakers you buy directly with 10,000, you have to DIY

Hi,

Yes and its bleedingly obvious. Your listening room is not the Albert Hall.

rgds, sreten.

That's why in good old days Yamaha monitors had toilet paper on tweeters. It was like a fashion in studios worldwide.

I have thought so too
so why bother

I know now how it works
and that its a misunderstanding
close your eyes, and use your imagination
now it depends on your speakers

it is possible to 'recreate' enough acoustic info to give the feeling of being there
you need smooth and very responsive dynamic speakers
close your eyes, and imagine being there
your room 'disappears', and you are there
imaginary illusion, ofcourse
but what else to expect
