My intention is not to get into a back and forth on this matter Dave, but I just wanted to point out a couple of things.
FIrst and foremost, I think we can all agree that this can be extremely subjective. Or you wouldn't of went out of your way in your response to BigRed to emphasize that it was YOUR opinion, but now with the statement "good electronics are good electronics", seems to imply that the Primare is superior, and no longer is an opinion.
As far as room correction, you said you have never "heard" one that did as much good as it did bad. I noticed you said "heard", have you taken any in room response measurements to insure there were no user errors, or to see that maybe you just don't prefer a flat response?
