So, as of 2019 (and the foreseeable future), buying any loudspeaker is a decision based upon how many compromises you are willing to accept. And which ones that particularly matter most to you.
This is what we are being led to believe but it's wrong. The implied claim is that one loudspeaker is significantly audibly superior to another because e.g it uses a carbon fibre cabinet, or a diamond dome, or a superior midwoofer. There is no evidence to support these claims. If there is, show me a double blind test.
I claim that most loudspeakers are actually very similar to each other. So similar that if their frequency response and phase cohesion were equal, they would sound pretty much the same.
So the sleight of hand is this. You have hundreds of speakers in the marketplace and each differs from another in multiple ways making it impossible to discern the reasons for any audible differences. The marketing department then comes up with a bunch of marketing spiel to explain why their speaker is superior, which is given to the audiophile dealers who then relay the BS to the customers who are even more ignorant than the dealers.
How many standmount speakers are there out there for example that use a 6inch woofer and a tweeter? The answer is too many. There are dozens of such designs all vying for our attention but its all a scam. The real difference lies in the crossover which controls how its all voiced. And the cruel irony is we arent the ones that gets to voice it exactly to suit our hearing and room. Its all done by the so called "speaker designers" who think they know better than we do. We are then left to sample all the different options, none of which are optimised for us. The speaker companies win and the customers lose. The used market for high end speakers is full of activity because most folks are unhappy. This raises the prices of new speakers which further profits the companies.
And that is how the game works folks.
