I may have a point on this
some years ago, I had some confidence with the owner of a shop, and he let me use the demo equipment, though in fact my budget didn´t allow to buy him more than a few cheap things.
one day I was psycothic listenig to some Eric Dolphy´s bass clarinet passage on the shop, I was not able to "feel" the clarinet and was turning nuts with that.
in a different zone of the shop an old man was calmly listening to some classical, he was very pleasant and quiet, and then he said: listening to music is for pleasure, not to make you nervous.
now I look for an audio system to relax me, first I try to identify where´s the problem, what makes me feel uncomfortable, and then take my time to think how to solve it, days, weeks ...
I can live without ultimate bass extension, but I like the cellos and pianos to sound close to their reverberant-resonant way, so I avoid ultra-damped systems
I like to follow oboes, wood winds, delineating the melody, so I look for clean low mids
I like to feel inflections, texture, time, the emotional content, so I like horns and SETs, but not because they play loud, in fact my average listening level is hardly 75-80 db
also I have found that phase-time coherence has great importance to relax me
it´s the way I like to relax at home
audio is a hobby, take your time, think what´s happening to disturb you and how to solve it before turning nuts.
by the way, offtopic, I am a pretty ignorant about horns, recently I bought a pair of 2nd hand Avantgarde Duos, very complex speakers, and this out of phase tweeter is killing me.
Omega tweeter is in phase and is said to improve things, maybe I should save the money (I can´t get the trios bass horn inside the room, the door is too narrow)
I´ve got a bidat and a bitstream dacs, the bidat exposes the problem so meantime I use the bitstream.
a friend has built a GRF-like horn enclosure with a pair of 12" tannoy golds, let´s see what happens.
may the tracking force be with you
