we have the Klippel data here measured on a final production driver last week, and we’re very close to publishing an application note for the STW including the Klippel and CEA2010 measurements, but it will take a couple of weeks before we can release the app note.
I very quickly looked at the data posted, and it seems very far off the spec, I’m not sure if the Klippel fitting error was too high, or something else going on, but the data certainly doesn’t look right,
To be honest it’s a very busy time here at the moment, we’re putting the final touches to our new Anechoic chamber. I visit the forum in my personal time as part of me being a DIY hi-fi nerd, it’s not a company role, so time is limited somewhat.
I’m flying to China Monday for 2 weeks, but intend to try and find some time to post on the forum, however the aggressive, and witch hunting attitude really puts me off.
However I offer to help, others just manipulate and attempt to bully.
I have offered one-to-one help to several people from the forum, and we’ve been having civil, constructive discussions.
Unfortunately there are a limited few on the forum who have a strong personal agenda, and are looking to ‘win’ their fight, in truth it’s not clear what a ‘win’ would be, and to what end?
Anyway it’s a real shame, as I used to enjoy developing these kind of hobbyist aimed drivers, as said they are hard to justify commercially, but I ensure we launch some as I feel they are good for the audio community in general.
I’m happy to discuss any feedback you have on the STW, good or bad, as long as we keep it professional and civil."
If i am wrong about his identity, I apologize for the annoyance.
I guess its just a personality flaw that he needs to be loved and appreciated as the designer of the driver but doesnt want any actual criticism.
How he thinks it helps his cause to argue over and over, everybody else just doesnt really know what they are talking about, but those claims are only refuted by his alleged credentials, not by any data.
You will be appreciated for your talents when you share them. So far its a lot of effort to stall an actual discussion.
Nick, darn it, you manned up more than anybody else. I will become a customer going forward, you earned it.
It just wasnt that hard...it required someone who has done this before. Thanks again.
Why does GB deserve any deference when an outside designer posts data on GBs driver before he does?
Perhaps GB is a brillant designer, maybe this driver isnt their best work, i would be fine if thats the case. But the effort to stall and obscure and whine its not civil?
