Nope, each speaker gets its own review. No AB comparison.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: $3,000 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

The device allows you to level match so that each speaker does not have any advantage or disadvantage for loudness, etc. If you set them all up one at a time ahead at one volume setting on the stereo gear then the device could be adjusted to a preset "level" match instantaneously when you play each pair. Orrrrr, you will level match one at a time presumably.

Hurry up, will ya. Sleep is overrated.

Any Gumbo happenin'?

Re: $3,000 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

We are not interested in AB comparisons of speakers. We do extensive detailed listening to each speaker individually and each review is about each speaker. This is not a "shootout" where we are trying to choose a winner. We are learning as much as we can about each speaker and what they do well and what they do not.

It is unlikely that very many vendors would be willing to send us speakers for a shootout, as only one can win. We already have to deal with manufacturers trepidation with having multiple speakers reviewed at the same time. AB comparisons can be useful when trying to isolate a problem or a specific aspect of performance, but it would be impractical with 6 pairs of speakers.

We may use the device for amp testing to see if we can hear differences at all consistently, if we have time. The speaker reviews take a lot of time to do correctly, however. Some are more challenging to get placed optimally than others.
