There are many accurate and specifically developed for near-field monitor speakers ---- an accurate one that some call the Gold Standard is the ADAM A7x ($750 ea.)

or these --https://www.jbl.com/studio-monitors/
Dynaudio MB5
Neumann KH 120A

Nothing in that article that has a measurement for front row.


BTW why the pushing of commercial speaker designs? I thought this was DIY? You in the right place :P

I see why you quote who you are replying to, so they can't add words after you've replied to them as you have done above by needlessly adding the word "totally" after I replied

Possibly Richard is referring to a well regarded commercial speaker that can be found in other countries and cities so you have a common reference if one bothered to go out and hear it, a DIY speaker would only be heard by a few, the rest of us wouldn’t know how it sounded.

yep. exaggeration gets attention.

By many persons opinions, they should be totally deaf by now as they are closer than we are to the levels shown. yet, they hear fine.

I hear fine also.

you can google and find front row if you like to know that number.

How loud, in SPL, is fff from a large orchestra at front row distance?

see #5096

any more questions or contributions on CD or near field or lower distortion from drivers?

Which again has nothing to do with domestic reproduction as commercial recordings employ considerable fader riding. Hand held readings with a ratshack meter which is known to be seriously off are also hardly credible. Do you really believe everything you read on the internet without question?



Ed I am sure has some proper measurements with calibrated gear, but still has no bearing on what gets recorded, mastered and released for us to replay.
