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, 


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. 



@campoly ....*G* Good.... ;)

...we will now tiptoe away from that, noting the deletion... 😏

.....and I've enough voices in my head....sans the 'mute' function at some junction....😜

@barts Hey, yeah....I Know that my drivers are Perfect, even if DIY’d....

And the others, aggregated to illume The Path to them, ditto....even if only 99.9%..

....and, as they come to take me away, in that lovely tight canvas coat on the handtruck I’ll try not to foam @ the mouth too much....🤪

....getting harder to escape, tho’...;)

Interesting how people envision a sound system.. Almost begging the question "what is a sound system"

Number one on my list is, does it make me happy? 

As one who has correctly treated my room, I can also point out the importance of the room.

BUT, the speaker is also extremely important. 

Sorry, but no matter how good one's room is, if a speaker is lacking detail, transient response, accurate timbre, is inherently colored, NO AMOUNT of room treatment is going to correct for that.

I have heard plenty of very high end speakers, in average sounding rooms, sound better than lesser speakers in well treated rooms.  

For example, I have heard Von Schweikerrt VR 55 mkII ($65K). in a typical living room sort of setting, sound substantially better than a pair of $14K Sonus Faber (not sure the model) in a professionally treated room. 

The Von Schweikert's had better attack and decay, had better transient response, had a bigger, deeper, more detailed soundstage, were more neutral, timbre was better.

Those things are inherent in the speakers themselves, and no amount of room treatment will get a lesser speaker, to do what it is not capable of doing.
