any scientist can brainwash their test subjects to respond a certain way...this has been proven with rats and all animals. If I train you and I test you, I will expect results...now if klipsch or svs trained you and you got results it means more. I have taken the harman online listening tool and I think its basic. I have listened to revel and they a bit more refined than some speakers, but I honestly like some klipsch and focal more...my brain and ears just dont think the music I listen to is best with many brands. I dont care what their response graphs look like....any speaker in any of the 5 rooms in my home with music all sound different. as of today I have klipsch, magnepan, and focal all in same room....they all play some music better tha others and all have been calibrated to be smooth in room with similar house curves. the focals are the flattest and they dont sound the best with all music....I will concede they best at all around avg. so imo take avg into account....if you like avg.
