Al, I’m not sure any system can do everything perfectly or anything perfectly. We are talking about systems trying to reproduce music. The best we can hope for is the next level and what we enjoy the most with the music we like the most.
I did not have a chance to listen to electronica or movie soundtracks at David’s house, but I did listen to Peggy Lee sing “fever“. It was unbelievable. I would be more than happy to live with any of David systems to play the type of music I like.
Yet the tone hear lately has been so gushing as to seemingly imply that SETs/horns do everything incredibly well, without the suggestion of any disadvantages, so that everyone in their right mind should have SETs/horns.
If that is the case, why doesn't have everyone? Is it just ignorance, or could it be a matter of taste too? There are plenty of people who did hear SETs/horns, and who have not decided to adopt that system type themselves. Why?
