Many people point their tweeters straight at the ear because they get intimate imaging and really precise placement, but is it the right thing to do? Are all speakers designed to be used on axis and what about off-axis?
This is a classic question loaded for snake oil howls and cries from those who have never heard the differences but none the less, Paul plows through the thick of it with some good answers.
Why would we not focus our speaker building work on an all-in-one speaker containing everything needed for high-end audio?
Wouldn’t multi-channel audio make more sense? Surround sound, quad sound. How can 2-channel ever hope to compete and why should we stay with 2-channel when there’s so much more to be had with surround?
There are off-the-shelf voltage regulators and there are discrete super regulators in some high-end audio designs. What are these super devices and how do they work?
What does PS Audio rely upon for musical references when voicing their equipment? Paul offers us a glimpse into the working of the company and the musical choices made.
Many marketing brochures for power amplifiers suggest they are ultra wide bandwidth designs. Just what does that mean and why should customers care?
Stereo systems are complex. Their collection of cables and equipment makes sure that every system sounds different for better and for worse than any other system. We learn that the one common thread amongst systems is their synergy between components.
We hear that recording studios and the professionals that run them are the best in the business. So should we use the same speakers they do in our home systems?
Is it incumbent on us as audiophiles to share our passion with younger aspiring people or should we keep it close to the vest and not foist our fun on others?
