Sorry, but my previous reply seems to have disappeared.

Charles, yes we are friends and if you and your wife are ever in SW FL drop us a line. Perhaps if schedules match up we can get together for a glass of wine, dinner, and to listen to some music togther.

Huge +1 to this....i never understood and get quite hacked off at those who look down their nose at brands that don't fit the fanboy or other subjective personal bias choices,...when they say something immediately followed by... it's good but it's not brand X or Y it is very hard to stomach.

I don't get upset on these forums. I just see forum members as friends sharing notes and audio journeys.

IMO when you're at this level of speakers - Wilson, Vivid, Magico and many more - they are all good, but for different reasons. Unfortunately, though it seems that questions about Wilson vs Magico invite controversy which I don't really understand. Since, I'm rather new to audio forums (and thus late too many previous discussions and perhaps bad feelings) I can only guess it is an us vs. them thing.

But IMO it doesn't have to be. All of us are different. We each have different hearing abilities. And some of us listen to different music which may make a difference as well. So, naturally some will go down path M while others may choose path W. And the why behind that audio journey can be very interesting.

The main thing is that we enjoy the music the way it sounds best to us.

You see this a lot in this hobby unfortunately....I wonder if the same thing happens in discussions involving fine wine, coffee, exotic cars? I could only imagine the arguing between the Ferrari and Lamborgini groups!

Yes because humans are involved, I am sure it does .

Peter Gabriel's song "Not One of Us" sums it up quite nicely!

"....A foreign body
And a foreign mind
Never welcome
In the land of the blind
You may look like we do
Talk like we do
But you know how it is
You're not one of us
Not one of us
No you're not one of us
Not one of us
Not one of us
No you're not one of us
There's safety in numbers
When you learn to divide..."

I went from a ported speaker (802d3) to an M3. Bass became a lot cleaner and more visceral. I am a supporter of sealed enclosures.

I just always assume that different people are looking for the sound that sounds best to them. Peoples opinion of what brand is "best" or "better" will depend on so many different factors, that I feel that any answer about music gear, be it here, at a show, or in a store will be different if the two people are sitting right there, listening to the same music.

Gear will sound different in everyone's different home. The type of music you like, and the way you like to listen to music will be a factor on what is "best" for you.

Now, I do think that many people can come together to agree is some gear is "good" or "bad". Even distortion (euphony) is desired by some people.

The better definition of "quality" I read the other day - If the gear you are listening to does not involve you emotionally, you might need to reconsider the gear.
