KEF IQ/Q made into my research list. I will see if I can find a place to audition NHT, PSB, Focal and Monitor Audio. How does the EMPtek's align with the others in the list?
I do not worry, or get concerned about ear fatigue - either it will happen
or not, it depends on the individual listener. I want a speaker to reveal
everything and not hide anything. Good speakers can do this, and still be
a pleasure to listen to, all day long. When you go and audition speakers,
clear you head and focus on the music, do not be thinking about any type
of ear fatigue. Make sure you are rested and feel good, before you begin
your auditions. A good speaker should have plenty of detail and definition,
and move you at the same time - and draw you into the music. Overall, it
is hard to beat in-home auditions.
I favor looking into the Empteks, due to reviews from the respected forum
members - other than that, I can not speak about them.
