Found this on The Register http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/07/02/feature_the_future_loudspeaker_design/?page=1

I'm not familiar enough with technical sound issues to know if what he says makes any sense, so would be interested in hearing opinions from the group.

I would love to square up and boot this guy in the shorts.

The article is clearly directed at IT centric readers, with little to no hifi or speaker setup experience. When was the last time you had an issue with your stereo loudspeakers and thought: "more IT is the answer"? wink and wireless data signals being "better" somehow? Ummmmmm......

"Perfect" loudspeakers can only exist in anechoic saces, as that is the only space their designed sound output can remain a constant. Put any speaker in any 2 rooms and "perfection" is lost. Nearfield listening is the best we can do.

If you want perfect loudspeakers, pay an acoustician to come and design the space and tailor the speaker response accordingly. Studio engineers have carefully designed spaces, and we could argue their speaker/audio equipment verge on state of the art in most cases (or "perfect", really.)

The carpenter quip at the end of the article sends the cred up in the air. A big nerd high five between he and his readership. laugh
