Snell Review and Graphs

Here was an interesting review of a not so affordable Snell speaker with excellent engineering. Graphs 4 and 7 looks so similar, and unlike the previous graphs of the Harbeths.

It must be that LG has done a great job in his listening room of dealing with reflected energy for a room and an anechoic graph to be so similar. He also seems to not have overly damped the room to kill HF energy. LG is on to something for sure. WP's space seems to decrease HF energy most of the time it seems.

I was wondering if LG has ever had the chance to have some Harbeths grace his living space? It would have also been interesting for graphs of the Vandersteens to be measured there as well. As if JA did not have enough to do, or more gear to lug around.

I am also guessing that bottled water will be used for all of AD's future beverage consumption from now on away from "Chez Dudley". I am gald he has recovered, but sorry for it not being "fully".

In part, the differences are due to the fact that Larry Greenhill sits around 8' from the speakers, where the direct sound predominates. By contrast, Wes sits 14-15' back, which means the soundfield at that point is dominated by the room's reverberant field.
