John Dunlavy! He is a brilliant design Engineer. He has taken speaker design to levels it never dreamed of. He built a accoustic chamber for his testing that is one of only a handful on the planet, it is so far beyond any test chamber built. Not only is true and accurate sound reproduction his top priority, but it must be quantified by science. This was the major source of the Dunlavy's anger over the IVa dropping from Stereophiles class A restricted to class B full range. John Dunlavy can prove his speakers results to Stereophile, but J.A. cann't handle it. Dunlavy is upset because the testing Stereophile does is inferior to his own labs work, and yet Stereophile can claim lesser results as fact! I think not, this became a bone of contension and J.A. showed J.D. by admitting he was wrong in his tests but dropped his speaker from class A to B to get back at him. J.A. claims the speaker (3 times) was over rated by the reviewers, including himself and that class B is where it should have been all along. Hey J.A., how the hell could you make such a major blunder, Stereophiles' "product of the year" but it was over rated. I think this proved to me that the value of Stereophile is over rated, and J.A. cann't handle a sub $10,000 speaker sitting in his Class A full range list. How would the advertisers react. The phony is the audiophile "scientists" at Stereophile, the real class of designers, John Dunlavy!
