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, 


@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.

Interesting how few people really know what their "dream speaker" would sound like. 


This is a thought experiment so no need. to treat the room, unless you are tired of thinking. lol
