The best "imaging" speakers?


Which speakers gave you the most "you are there" experience?

Coherent is a good thing. 
There is a relative trade-off between soundstage and imaging.... Yes, but i just increase these 2 qualities today, and improved also the timbre, by moving a single piece of metal thin enclosure (a fan) in my room... You can play with this trade-off then, he is not an absolute number linked to electronic design only, but it is mainly the variable sonic mirror of your room ...

People dont imagine the powerful effects that acoustic controls do in a room....They wave brand speakers name without thinking that the Edison business of design recording high-fidelity is relatively new, but Greek theater marvel has already some thousand years old...

Audiophile life is more linked to acoustic than engineering electronics.... More linked to your ears experience than to electronic marketing....We do not listen first to an electronic component, speakers, dac, or amplifier, we listen to music in our room first, and at the end....

A good amplifier is necessary, but the full experience is delivered by your room....

It is one of the three necessary embeddings of any audio system...

Embeddings are on par with design for producing the full experience...

No, not "huge."   Not even remotely as big a part as the speakers.

You are right, the speakers characteristcs will weigh more than the electronics design of the dac or the amp and even of the 2 most of the times if not always...

But the room will weigh on par with the speakers design half the time, and for the other half will weigh even more...

Theater design is more important than the speakers in the theater, if there is some, no need in a good acoustical theater of powerful amplification or electronics to compensate the room....No need even less for some particularly more refine amplifier design.... :)

Polykleitos the Younger is much older than Edison; acoustic science precede faithful modern reproduction of sound (hi-Fi)...

This is the reason why a good audio engineer is also an audiophile, and why most audiophiles dont need the urge to becomes audio engineers.... :)
