Generally speaking - you may be right. There are a lot of big old speakers that I don't like.

 

However there are some that I like the sound of a lot.

 

JC, when it comes to hi-fi we are poles apart. You like what you like. I like what I like. You don't like what I like. I don't like what you like now and I don't like most of the equipment that you've used and therefore by implication liked in the past.

 

That's all fine. We can all have different tastes.

 

 

Where does that leave anyone else reading this? All the people that are not you and not me? My advise to them is to listen for themselves and make their own mind up. I've said this already a few times and will repeat it once more: I would be very happy to bring a a system I can chuck in the back of my car and bring it to a comparative demo at someone's house or a dealers where we compare it against any 2 way active plus sub system.

 

It's a pretty pointless exercise saying "My system sounds better than yours because,,," "No mines better than yours because..." on an online forum. These are all just words. And they will all be from the point of view of the poster. Nothing will ever get proven from such online debate. A comparative demo on the other hand is a different kettle of fish. Where the equipment does the talking. It's a truth test for hi-fi.

A popular view piont does not always mean it's the truth.
