kenjit - the car that you bought was optimized for the roads that the designers drive on, NOT the roads that YOU drive on. You’ve been DUPED buddy.

Many people treat their rooms too -so yes they are optimizing their speakers/room to their ears -as you suggest. If that’s not your point then what is? Are you suggesting something? Btw- It’s a hobby. If people are happy exploring equipment and speakers that’s great. If Others think it’s a waste of money why would they care?@vinylfan62 Actually as far as i know many audiophiles do not treat their rooms. That aspect is never mentioned in hifi reviews either. Ive been to hifi shows and dealers. No treatment in most cases. And most treatment is useless for bass anyway.
But youre right. The room is obviously part of the optimisation. Thats exactly my point. But the room is only one aspect of it. The crossover, the drivers, the cabinet, the frequency response, are all variables that need to be optimised.
Nobody wants to waste time and effort, do they? Its a hobby but whats the end goal? The end goal is maximum enjoyment of your music. Thats my assumption.
Kenjit is getting a rise out of all of us. The bland points that everyone's hearing is different and we won't necessarily agree with a speaker engineer's claims of audio nirvana bore me. Who cares? I enjoy hearing my Veritas every time I throw them on. I've enjoyed swapping power amps and cables to get something new out of them. I enjoy buying 2nd hand inexpensively, experiencing the equipment for some time, and then trading up to something different and allowing someone else to experience my previous joy. I love the amazing audio quality I have achieved on a budget just as much as I enjoy far more expensive & capable audio systems. I've found something enjoyable with each speaker or amp I've used, as well as found incremental room for improvement. The quest is part of the experience. There is no destination for me, just a passion for experiencing great music on great gear. I think that is reason enough to stay the course and continue the audiophile journey. Kenjit won't be bringing me down today with his jaded views.
