    Yamaha says their new Zylon-Based speakers are more like a musical instrument than a speaker! I've never heard speakers that can project music into a room like real musical instruments can.

    Cool, the price is going down ($15,000 including stands). Last time I checked I thought they were $20,000

    Because it is impossible. If it can project a violin perfectly, it fails for everything else.

    You can tell something sounds real on YouTube??? . . . through your computer speakers ???. . . or YOUR stereo system speakers??? and by YOUR speakers, I mean whatever speakers you own--Wilson XLF, Pendragon, Genesis Prime, Magico, Assoluta . . . the list goes on.

    You can't tell how other speakers sound by listening to a recording of them through YOUR speakers.

    Try the experiment yourself - record your stereo system playing a recording of an instrument. Then record that instrument playing live. Notice any difference (apart from different acoustic)?

    With most stereo systems there's a loss of dynamics between the real thing and the playback which is noticeable even on a relatively poor quality recording such as through a mobile phone. But YMMV.
