I was wondering whether the port could be plugged, and what sort of effect this would have on measured and perceived response?

I have two questions:

1) Are your favourable subjective assessments of the Dreamcatcher's altered at all by the less than ideal measurements?  This seems like a case where measurements don't tell the entire story and subsequently don't guarantee sound quality.  Agree? Disagree?

2) I'm curious about your thoughts regarding matching the Simaudio Moon i.5 with the Dreamcatcher's in a small to medium sized room, most likely as a smaller bedroom system?  I do recognize that you have not reviewed the i.5, however, you did recently review the Simaudio i-1.  knowing Simaudio, my assumption would be that many of the positive characteristics of the i-1 would carry-over to i.5.  Additionally, your positive feelings towards the i-1 seem to parallel the Creek Destiny, with which you used when reviewing the Dreamcatcher's.

I have to agree with Mr. Reina on this. These speakers sound is indeed intoxicating. It is involving, refined, fast, detailed but most of all it is just musical. I'm breakin-in a pair of dreamcatchers. Right out of the box they sound amazing. They image like crazy! Can't stop listening. I'm running mine with a Marantz PM6004/CD6004, and found it to be powerful enough for them. One thing I noticed is that the woofer is different than the ones in the pictures in this website. Mine have a plug in the woofer. Fantastic speakers! Forget measurements! Just listen!
