My “understanding” whatever you feel I understood “after seeing the CES voodoo” neither changed nor evolved in any directions. My level of tolerance changed but it was it.
However, I feel that you mistakably “deciphered” my message. First of all I have to note that I have heard many home-brewed loudspeakers that did not necessary sound better, in many cases worst, then thier commercial equivalents. They were less expansive but “just the price” is completely irrelevant at this mater.
You see, I do not complain about the commercial loudspeakers as a concept but I complain that 1) they are mostly bad 2) they “politically” are not inappropriate audio ingredient 3) they have very little to do with the actual listener’s demands and needs (listener-speakers and speakers- listener feedback loop)
I know it is kind of “general phrases” but trust me: I have a lot of “load” behind those watery words. I am sick now and I‘m out of my healthy-malicious attitude but when I get in my normal physical shape and have time then I writhe further explanations on the subject.
