I think this kinda agrees with what you've said here.
You also seem to agree with me that the sound quality improvements from low end to high end are probably small, and most of what you're paying for is output and extension, at least with science based companies like Harman.
If the Infinity speaker that Amir has measures close to the Revel speaker, I think it's fair to say that it's probably very similar in sound quality(ignoring output and extension). Do you agree with that?
Trick question, I had to think about it!
If you mean do I think they will Sound Similar
, yes I do within reason until pushed to higher volume levels.
is a nebulous term that has no objective measurement parameters. I think sound quality is usually better with higher quality (and thus usually higher priced) drivers, crossover components and cabinets.
Many people say the Be tweeters in the Be and Ultima2 series speakers sound very smooth and natural and "better" than the aluminum tweeters in the Performa3 series.
In answer to your question, I think the Revel speaker might have better sound quality
due to the higher quality parts. When I compared the M16 to the M106, I felt the M106 sounded better, more refined in sound quality.
Subjective vs objective, very tough subject.
