Escaping the maze
Different isn't necessarily better, but it is often the key to escaping the maze of sameness. A different way of reminding ourselves not to get trapped in the classic definition of insanity: doing the same thing time and again hoping for different results. For years I skipped between electrostatic speaker models hoping for musical nirvana. With each new model, I inched closer to my goal only in the end to be so unhappy with the lack of dynamics and bass that I gave up and moved on to the next. I couldn't escape the maze until I tried something entirely different. The escape route turned out to be planar magnetic drivers. The speed and effortlessness of the electrostatic panel with the punch and dynamics of a traditional cone. It is often frustration that prompts us to take a chance on something new. On occasion, we just might be open enough to try different just for the sake of different. It is, after all, not the same.
