building on a previous post. again, tempests in action:
/\ /\ tiny amp, maybe 10 watts max?
\/ \/ big adcom amp, maybe 200-300 watts?
i guess that is what dave wilson calls dynamic contrast. :-)
maybe all three b&w guys just had bad mics... :-)~
more... (i guess this guy with "dream system" has bad mic too)
more... "try playing this at realistic levels...drum test...brute force dynamics test" lol...i kept waiting for the dynamics to kick in.
jump forward to 7:40 if the link doesn't automatically get you there.
MUST WATCH...^^...the voice over is hilarious.
the test tracks in that vid are available here:
more...this time norah jones...
now, forward to the 1:30 mark in this one:
not seos, but same idea."The best I can describe the sound is 'real'. Its about as real as I've heard from any speaker."
any questions? :-)
well, the question was is something like the tempest or a pseudo-econowave diy project any good for music?
many would argue that b&w are some of the finest, most musical speakers, and as a result are found in many of the top recording/mastering studios around the world. i'm not picking on b&w. they are a reasonable benchmark to compare with. i think keith yates just put a set in george lucas' theatre mastering room. i'm not picking on him either. :-)
