Does the first reflection point actually matter??
I remember picking on Harry when he came up with his flashlight theory. He said to me "oh well it’s published". Guys, sound is pressure. Some of the people in audio seriously need a hobby lol.mg 
Should a reference speaker be neutral, or just great sounding?
Hi ErikIn regards to your latest definition, the way you described it, reference is nothing more than a marketing tool. michael 
Using platforms / shelves under floorstanders?
http://www.michaelgreenaudio.net/platforms I've been designing Tunable Platforms for some 40 years now. It's a major part of not only giving you flexibility when voicing your sound but also makes for a necessary interface between the speaker/room/... 
Should a reference speaker be neutral, or just great sounding?
But, we should keep in mind that there is no such thing as flat in audio, never has been. Audio is a continuum of variables. That goes for all three parts of "The Audio Trilogy" Electrical, Mechanical and Acoustical.mg 
Should a reference speaker be neutral, or just great sounding?
Reference in HEA is fairly generic and weakens the origins of "reference" or "referencing" music, which was started by going from the Live room to the Control room to the Playback room.I've seen High End Audio try to use musical production terms f... 
Should a reference speaker be neutral, or just great sounding?
That's simple. A reference speaker should be Tunable. It would drive me crazy to have a speaker I can't physically adjust to my liking. Why listen to a speaker that one constantly has to blame something else in the system or recording for not soun... 
something is not right here and it's on purpose!!!

Will Technology Kill the Audiophile Hobby?
I hope everyone is staying safe during this time. I haven't been up here in a while but I think about the future of HEA all the time of course. Well not so much HEA (boat anchors) but listening systems in general. I received another PM yesterday f... 
Does raising speaker cables off the floor really make a big difference?
"The only thing that is obvious is that this is a claim with no merit or factual basis." very strange statementActually what I do is all documented and has been since 1989 in High End Audio and back to 1975 in the pro-audio world. Sometimes you gu... 
Another Analog v. Digital Thread? Not Really
Funny to read "warm" mentioned as "artificial" lol. I love warm music and a system that can play it. Two bosses of mine who use to also love saying warm were Louis Lane and Robert Shaw. mg 
Does raising speaker cables off the floor really make a big difference?
I have a question. Those of you who call things like cable risers snake oil and BS, what do you call amplifiers costing tons of money based on super heavy chassis? The chassis obviously closes in the soundstage. So does having big transformers nex...

DIY speaker isolation base for a wood floor
Hi BlueSprings are a great tool when voicing your system. Once you start using them you might find other materials that you like the sound of better than aluminum, rubber and granite. Steve's invention of the Tip Toe was also revolutionary and was...
