I don't fully agree with all says Earl Geddes.
Subjective assessments have a value depending on the knowledge and serious of the guy that report them.
They need to be verified by yourself to see if it correlate with your own experience.
Addressing a flaw need a correct scientific analysis to know the right direction to take.
Again, I'm not a believer, neither na audiophile, neither a pure objectivist.
My horns are spherical waves based. Before any publication of Le Clea'ch.
The idea was not mine, the choice based on what I heard.
I prefer the JBL M2 to the Earl Geddes NS15. There are many roads that drive-you to Rome.

Oh yes? And who assesses that and how? Is it like when Mark and Richard assess one another and the sound and find they agree?

You, for yourself.

Exactly. And, as I often have the same experiences, I tend to read their inputs with interest.
Not saying that I "believe blind". If they indicate something that I can try, i will verify by myself.

Yes, I’m trying to figure out a better mousetrap for the dsp end of things, looking like a mini dsp shd is in the lead.

Already have a crown xls 2002 for subs, gonna run the 10” drivers with the my yammie. And the Hint has a HT bypass so I can run the tweets from that (should stay in class A for the most part!)

So except for a cap on each tweet it’ll be all active.

I wouldn’t be able to integrate my current equipment without the dreaded speaker cable but I’ve got some decent belden/cardas stuff matched to each component. (All off the spool so no panic!)

As I wrote, no load at otput. Just to show "capacitor distortions"..With load it looks like this, in picture is also no load measurement and card loopback.

WHo is trying to argue ?
It is very simple. When a sound engineer that i admire the work told me that some gear is very good for something, I it give-me the desire to test-it because I trust his "taste" is close to mine.
We most of all listen to the same records, and I usually understand what people are looking for, and have an idea if it is the same things than me.
In studios, we don't have lot of difficulties to share our feelings with various musicians and producers.

That makes some sense because you have heard the sound he has created and have access to the same gear, how do you go about assessing Earl, Richard or Mark?
