I am interested in this post from the perspective of you being a "new generation" audiophile.
What led you to speak in such a detailed manner so directly to your priorities in a system/loudspeaker?
What music and audio educational experiences contributed to this very defined POV?
As someone who has studied and immersed oneself in performance audio for decades, I find your post fascinating.
Thank you so much!
Less than you would think, I've listened to some audio systems the last 8 years, and researched lots of info about audio. From the speakers I've heard, I was always "distracted" by tweeters tonality even if they are very well integrated within the system, I'm very sensitive to tone and it's continuity. I've also dislike the sense of compression (even at low volumes) of the speakers with smaller drivers I've heard. I've figured out that a speaker setup that would suit my tastes perfectly must have all the characteristics mentioned above using research and common sense. I also have a pretty vivid imagination and can "imagine" how something would sound with more treble, bass, depth etc so I can build expectations or a desired sound mentally before hearing or changing something.
Currently I have no speaker setup, but plan to build one according to my desires (ie: pay someone to build drivers according to my needs, the cabinet, crossover, assemble the speaker etc) once I have enough time and money for it. Same for the custom amp. Currently I'm focused on different, more necessary and mundane projects. I really like lurking here because of the quality of the content and the very welcoming members in general.
