Been there, done that. I honestly believe it is a dead end. See my lengthy reply to Allen a few minutes ago.

That's OK. You are not familiar with past history where things got rather unpleasant. I don't hold anything against you.

If I had the chance to start at the beginning, I would have handled it differently and perhaps better.

I am now a current guy and everything I see is through that prism. I want low distortion rather than a theoretical 'transient perfect' design. And I am definitely talking about distortion that can be measured. That's the surprising bit, because you can't argue with those.

Cheers, Joe

re: the current thingy and the previous (last 1-2 years) somewhat wild discussion... you described an upcoming report from your expert team - is that coming forward? I think we are a few here that would be interested to read it.

All in good time. It's not the only thing wild that has happened in the last 1-2 years.

Not at the moment. Last time I went it was 8 hours and 45 minutes drive - plus a few breaks.

I think current drive, low distortion, and transient perfect all matter, but the priorities may vary. I look more at the day characteristics first. Once that meets a certain criteria, all other improvements become more obvious.

Joe,

What sensitivity are these speakers? Or more aptly, how much amplifier power would you recommend should I build a set? I listen loud.

Looks a very innovative design.
