The crossover will be determined by the room and NOT the Tannoy. I remember a post where an 80 Hz room issue was covered by the crossover - I think from the woofer tower to the midbass back then. Then another post came where the woofer towers were di...

In Macondo/Melquiades thinking, random process means random result - and that is exactly what happened with Dunnoy. A random driver was placed in a random cabinet with a random passive radiator and random cabinet damping. All subsequent attempts to r...

IF the Remedios cabinets have more volume than the Dunnoy, you just put bricks inside Remedios until you have the same volume. I assume that EVERY Tannoy Red will have a different resonance frequency. They are old and have certainly not been played t...

When the stars align and the playback through a stroke of luck happens to align with that the recording/mastering is. The problem is that recording engineers are not recording for audiophile playback. They use tons of microphones to create an "intell...

My view of Gödels "incompleteness" has more to do with systems not being able to verify themselves from within. This certainly can apply to audio in that the playback specifications can be very "qualified" but the "quality" must be found outside of t...
