As a hobbiest and not a physicist I have to go by observations and my gut feelings. I have always thought that the goal for the reproduction system is accuracy, at least as a baseline. It doesn't mean that a system can't have optional and configurable methods of modifying the source data in an attempt to recreate the live experience.

So speakers should be designed to reproduce the electrical signal as true as possible for a wide a variety of rooms. This is why I never bought into the 901 design. That was until I heard a friend's B&O system that used traditional speakers for mains and Bose for the "Ambio" channels. This was back in the 70s and sophisticated DSP for audio was yet to come. But the attempt by B&O to introduce ambience through a primative bucket brigade delay showed merit. Using Bose for the delay channels created an impressive effect for back in the day.
