Thanks for that cartoon. It perfectly catches an audiophile attitude that may explain the lack of interest in monitor speakers. Which is too bad. Many audiophiles do not have large rooms, and a monitor/sub combo might have distinct sonic advantages in their situation over big floorstanders -- if they ever tried. They might get a better soundstage, higher quality bass and, if they have to sit close to the speakers, better driver coherence at the listening spot. Also with a suitable monitor/sub combo you can achieve great body and weight of sound, as well as fantastic dynamics (in fact, vividness of sound tends to be a strength of monitors). Of course, in a really large room you need large speakers if you want to achieve "room fill" and scale.

Yes, the cartoons are a very nice touch @ WBF. They fit perfectly the audiophile's good humor. :b
It was nice when in the 60s and 70s we were buying hi-end audio mags with audiophile's cartoons in them.
Keep on rockin' in the free world.
