Why bookshelf type speakers are high end
There’s also not that much musical content below 40hz for most music genres anyway, so extension down to 20hz (which requires massive sensitivity trade-offs) isn’t really worth itYou might think theres not much musical content below 40hz if youve ... 
Why bookshelf type speakers are not high end
Maybe not If the microphone cant respond to 20hz then it needs to be fixed. The point is, real life sounds do contain 20hz even if its at a low level. This should be in the recording and then reproduced by the speakers. Ive also already said that ...

Bookshelf speakers can be very expensive but they most certainly disappear in the room better then a big speaker and use a pair of Svs 3000sb , or ultra 16 Subwoofers and you have a great full range speaker with a quality standmount ,You are missi...

Does the Kii stand mount not go down to 20hz?Even if it did, it would not be flat at high volume. A bigger box and driver would do it more easily.

It depends how much you care about high quality sound. I thought being an audiophile meant aiming for the highest possible level and always trying to go even higher.

Were the reviewers using a subwoofer when they reviewed the LS50?

Erik, do you use a sub with your standmounts? Are you one of those audiophiles that I have alluded to? 
Is flat frequency response a hoax?
but sound very different because of phase shifts (different harmonics summing). Still, all measurements are useful.poppycock. if different harmonics are summing they will show up on the frequency response.

I quit eating ice cream because none was custom built for my taste buds.You're using the wrong analogy. The audiophile community is quite big. There is no similarly large community of ice cream eating enthusiasts that is as fastidious about the fl... 
Is flat frequency response a hoax?
why so many recordings have a playback volume that sounds "right".nonsense. I will play my music at the volume that suits me. If it doesnt sound right then it needs to be fixed. Why should we be forced to listen at a particular volume?  
Is flat frequency response a hoax?
In monitoring the recording the volume its played at affects the balance they hear which in turn affects the response they build into the recording. In short the only way to hear what they heard is to play it at the volume they heard it at. There ...
