Why not horns?
Mapman. The important thing is that you are enjoying it. 
Why not horns?
Macrojack....Mr Decibel here. On a review here on Audiogon of the Ohm Walsh 2000 speakers, the reviewer states " Horns, in particular, along with drum kits and guitars(both electric and acoustic)have an uncanny natural quality that comes extremely... 
Amazing ''Overachieving'' products...your pick?
The " original " Monster Cable might or might not have been time aligned (this was about 30 years ago) and I truly cannot remember. But the dealer networks (I was at one at the time) were sent this little Monster box display (it was clear to see t... 
Amazing ''Overachieving'' products...your pick?
Nsgarch, Bruce Brisson might have designed the speaker wire design as well, but it was Noel Lee, as the head of Monster, with his "speaker wire", that started the whole thing. The speaker wire was his 1st product. Lee was a marketing genius, not j... 
Best tracks to "show off" your system
S.R.V.'s Tin Pan Alley....

What is the standard for judging a systems sound?
As I mentioned previously on another thread, a system must be able to convey Rhythm, beat and tempo. This is the ability to follow each and every musician, solo and as a whole(Thank you Ivor). System tonality, spatial perspective, dynamics, noise ...

It is interesting and refreshing to here someone (other than myself) talk about a speaker that has speed, dynamic prowess, resolution and scale. These are all attributes of live music. I also put emphasis on rhythm, beat and tempo, (similar to spe... 
Klipsch LaScallas vs Klipsch Cornwalls?
A 15 x 22 room would be fine for Lascalas or Cornwalls(from lots of experience). If an image cannot be created some placement trial and error (both speakers and listening seat), room treatment, and associated equipment would help. As far as a 14 x... 
Klipsch LaScallas vs Klipsch Cornwalls?
I have owned both as well. I presently own Lascalas. However I have done much work to them to get them to "disappear". (You can visit the thread Why Not Horns). Have you listened to either of these in lenght, in a room your size, with electronics ... 
Why not horns?
Unsound, I am sorry as well, but I am done....... 
Good, Affordable Horns?
Unsound. I am sorry as well, but i am still done...... 
Good, Affordable Horns?
Unsound, it is people like you that I feel do unjust to forums. Read my last post on "Why not horns". 
Why not horns?
There seems to be an ignorance and artificial intelligence by some of the folks here. We are talking about recorded music here and the systems we acquire to bring us closer to the truth(what ever this truth is). We are all opinionated, but when wh...
