The Daniel Hertz M1 ultra mega mega party speaker
fiogf49gjkf0d
By virtue of the internet facilitated 'brain merging' technique; the world has now witnessed a speaker born of the joined brain wave efforts of 97,3% of the registered users of DIYaudio.com. Behold! :

http://www.stereophile.com/content/daniel-hertz-m1

Lynn Olson (who contributed 48% of the brain matter), Earl Geddes (36%), PIS Speakers and THE Mark Levinson + DIYaudio have amalgamated their ideas into this new ground breaking loudspeaker. Three quarters of the 100.000 $ price tag is compromised of all those nifty little ideas that these geniuses have come up with. That's why the audio press proclaimed the M1 a unrivalled bargain.

A new benchmark in pink noise fidelity!

The Ostap Bender of Audio.
fiogf49gjkf0d
I did not know that Lynn Olson and Earl Geddes involved in Levinson’s operation.  With all disagreement with those individuals I thought that they are smarter than to deal with Mark Levinson. I hope they did not give him any money and did not accept any “I owe you” obligations for the rendered services. Mark is famous to run to ground any operation he ever was involved with and run away with money of investors and partners.  Before he settled in Switzerland he was hiding for a few years in Sound America from IRS and reportedly from private debts collectors. I do not know how it was settled.

So, nowadays Mark doe not write books about Orgasms for women but claim a cosmetics company, a watch company and loudspeaker company.  Well, good for him, I truly mean it.  Shire whoever knows him understand that his Mark Levinson has nothing to do with anything.  A few years ago Mark Levinson found some rich Switzerland men and with wet eyes he explained to them that with their investment he can turn copper into gold and rubbles init dollars. Some people did not see the Ostap Bender of the Mark Levinson’s magnitude and go for it. I do not judge them – why not it is better them losing money in casino.

I do not know about the merit of those loudspeakers.  I am bit surprised with low amount of BS that Mark invest to describe them. The stainless steel frames and screws that “extremely complex and difficult to make and polish” is very primitive move. Since he is consulting with Fremer (according to the blog) then I am sure more BS will be coming.  In fact , since the speaker has something reminding to simpletons horns then I presume that the next door that Mark will be knocking it will be Joe Roberts – that blabbering whore will give to Levinson the BS literature that he look like craving for.
I think that intelligent people in audio can run bets how long it will take for Mark to suck blood from all of his Switzerland investor and to run to China or to Russia. I give him 2 years….

Perhaps I wasn't laying it on thick enough...

The DIYaudio, Lynn Olson and Geddes remark was a joke - but not as far off the mark as one might think. Just looking at the picture of this speaker I get a feeling it was designed by someone browsing DIY forums and jumping on to what ever is in fashion this month. Its a big drivers - small thinking solution and you can find a lot of that at DIYaudio.com.
Not having heard it I have no idea of what it sounds like but I am certain about the mentality behind the design ideas. It is too diverse and messy to have an interesting conception of sound behind it.

Actually I very much disagree. Olson/Geddes and Levinson are so much in different scale that their names together (in my view) even can’t be used in jokes or sarcasm pans. I am dead serious. In fact I am not in agreement with the whole notion of your reply, not the I have to be….
