Questions about Resolving Systems

I know this will be subjective but what makes a resolving system?

Does it mean it has great detail?

How do you know if you have a resolving system?

Is that only for system that employ high end components?

I am just trying to get a better understanding.



A system that reveals as much of the recorded information as possible. The trick being leaving the music to sound proportionally correct. Not sure soundstage comes to mind as it is contrived but harmonics, tone of instruments, vocal pitch etc

My very affordable $300 mini system also sounds pretty amazing

Okay, I gotta ask what is it???

@williewonka, I was able to take a "one-time-only" peek at your response (via notification) but nothing was related to my question. This is a fundamental question related to the essense of your Helix design that, I believe, audiophiles desire to experiment this concept if it really works as you have claimed. I really wish you could take this chance to articulate it.

Like @cdc has asked too, I had procured two $300 mini systems (Loxjie A30 + Sony sscs5 / Tannoy Mercury F1) for my kids and they like it. To me, however, these mini systems could only reach 70-80% of performance compared to my 2nd system that costs 10 times more in my (of course) subjective assessment. IF the bottleneck is cabling and utilizing your design could substantially enhance its performance to a "pretty amazing" level, I will consider it a no brainer experiment.




William James' work on non-focal attention (or "fringe") may be of interest, here. 

Here's an interesting and influential paper on the subject:

This is a very promising paper on the "fringe" and the uncanny in experience.
