The reviewer is pretty funny. Worth watching at home even if you're not interested in the speakers.op isnt much use for those that cant watch video.
Care to elaborate?

Best speaker ever would have Scanspeak drivers. Those are the best sounding speakers to my ears. But as far as computer 2.1 audio goes, I really like my Klipsch Promedia set.
If Youtube is to be believed there are an awful lot best speakers in the world.It doesn't look like a bad little Studio monitor type of speaker, but would be miles away from best speaker ever.
he said $600 a pair, i can't find them anywhere below $950 and that's from Japan on ebay
I think he was referring to the small waveguide around the woofer itself. Or most likely he doesn't understand how horns work.Not sure why he calls that area around the woofer a horn. It's not symmetrical at all (the bottom in particular) and not even remotely big enough to do anything at woofer frequencies. That depth would barely even classify as a waveguide for a tweeter.
I sold my MTS-01, two years ago before moving. Sold a lot of stuff rather than haul it across the country. I'm actually foolish enough to be strongly considering a pair of Ultras. Just waiting to see some reviews of the new Elac Uni-fi B5 before making a decision.I kinda want to hear SVS Ultra speakers, given that I love my SVS MTS-01s. But I kinda don't in that I don't want to then feel like I need to have them and spend a ton more money
Our friend is back and he's crowned a new best speaker ever.
I've heard them and they're nothing short of amazing... if you feel like dropping $1000 on a pair.
Pretty much.. I actually stumbled along his videos when I was researching monitors/speakers for my desk, thought I found a gold mine of reviews. Unfortunately he does no real measurements other than volume levels, everything else is completely subjective. Now that's not really inherently BAD, but you find very quickly watching his videos that whatever item his video covers, is now the next best thing, like he's either convincing himself of his purchase or trying to sell you something (not that that's the case, it's just the vibe I get).So in other words he's never heard a really good set of speakers properly setup so as he works his way up the price performance curve of speakers that suit his tastes each one is going to be the "best speaker ever"? Should you really trust someone reviewing speakers with no room treatments? Just listening to his bloviating reviews makes it clear he's not really familiar with good audio and has no idea about what makes a good speaker or not. I wonder what would happen if he heard really good high end speakers set up properly...
BTW, What's up with the rack full of glasses and sunglasses that we can see in the JBL video?

Well, as Sycraft points out untreated rooms can have a variety of problems. No one reading his reviews can tell what problems his room has. He might find a pair of speakers that have minimal negative interaction in his room, but don't perform all that well in general. Yet, he'd conclude they're awesome and better than all the others. If he took measurement from his MLP or also listened to the speakers outside there'd be more value there.I think it's absurd to claim one can't legitimately review speakers unless one does so from an acoustically treated room.
I'd wager more people have treated rooms than there are people doing video reviews online and soliciting review samples.How many people listen to their music, movies, etc. in acoustically treated rooms?
Floyd Toole & Sean Olive absolutely disagree. Their research in this area is pretty convincing.Nobody really knows what "sounds good" to anyone else, it's all very personal.

Welcome to [H]ardform... Where everyone with a keyboard and an Internet connection is an expert.And they're free to do so, I have no opinion of them or their work as I have no idea who they are. I'm not really sure what research of theirs has to do with my opinion of people enjoying flat vs boosted response?
Have you actually heard them? I haven't so I won't make any pronouncements about them.Bowers and Wilkins Nautilus is the Mclaren F1 of speakers. Produced over 20 years now from memory, still a reference speaker...
Bow to your Nautilus overlord!
Then there is the B&W 800D revision 2 which supposedly edges the nautilus out, which perhaps needs a diamond tweeter upgrade.
Then the designer of the nautilus went and made his own speaker which is reputed to be superior (by a fraction at this level..)
Would you attempt to start a review channel reviewing sporty / performance cars for performance without a having a Racelogic VBOX or similar data logging device that you could use to record objective data with? I sure wouldn't.
