What would your "perfect speaker" sound like.


What would your perfect speaker sound like. Not interested in the brand, or the a speaker you heard at a friends house or audio show This is a thought experiment. Simply conjur up the most divine sound in you mind and tell us what you are conjuring. 

Please be brief,

#Mahgister...... you are right.  Case in point, go to any show where they set up their equipment [speakers included] in a hotel room like Axpona.  Some of the most expensive speakers will sound crappy beyond belief because the space is too small or untreated.  I never have the heart to say much of anything, especially when they smile and act like it is golden.

You can not discuss loudspeakers without including the room, they are both part of the same transducer. The perfect speaker room would be the one that, with the best live recordings, could fool you into thinking you were at a live performance from the Melos String Quartet to Guns and Roses.

Since most rooms are seriously flawed this is unlikely to happen even with the finest equipment. 

The best speaker/room is the one that gets you closest to the perfect one. The best is the most you can hope for with current tech. 

The most perfect speaker is the one that you own and love

The rest is just a fools errand.

 

I prefer to think of it as "just music" and not a pursuit of the unattainable.
