I wouldn't be surprised if there are thousands of speakers available out there, I'm not going listen to each one to discover which one I like best that day at that time. I bought some that are neutral, sensitive and are known to be solid speakers in their price range and I enjoy my music, several hours every week. Are there better speakers? I'm sure(shut up, Scott,) but I'm not going to torture myself over the minutia of amplifier differences, that's for sure.
And, no, I've never done dbt tests myself, nor do I plan to. And yes, I do believe Floyd Toole's research in general, because, you know, it was done by active scientists and engineers, and not a retired crank.
I'm one of those weirdos that actually spends his time LISTENING to his system, instead of constantly tweaking it.
