Schoeps omnidirectional microphones, Sonosax mic interface, 4K Iphone, it should be show what is happening in the room!

Videos will be posted on Totaldac Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMsrJl1A6snsuSjfbAH6rZA

I will also try to post some uncompressed/unmodified 96KHz/24 master files of real musicians playing in this room.

I will record 3 speakers in two different rooms: Totaldac d150-anniversary, Magico M6s and a large bass horn system.

Be ready!

What is this impedance matching box? Sounds like a typical Zobel network

It is a box connected in parallel to the speaker.

Here is impedance of the Magico M6 without the box (red) and with the box (green)

Interesting, Dynaudio was also known to tune their crossovers for flat impedance using parallel networks. Do you also have phase plots?
