Default Passlabs Rushmore

This has to be one of the world's best speakers.
Does anyone recognise the drivers ?

I heard them at the last CES and they were not that impressive. Maybe under different conditions...?

When kit looks this good, its ok to sound "not that impressive"

I find it very hard to draw conclusions at hi-fi stores, let alone at a noisy exhibition with bad acoustics and unfamiliar music.
Also, my experience has been that the more accurate speakers tend to sound less "impressive" because they don't have exaggerated mids or highs etc.

In my experience also. If the music's impressive, then that's good. If the speaker's impressive, then it's altering the playback or colouring the sound. The only time the speaker should be impressive is when it's off - and then as a peice of sculpture.

All IMHO, of course.
