ribbons vs domes and sibilance
By the way, whether or not a dome tweeter is pistonic in audible frequencies is not a very esoteric question requiring laser diffraction measurements or anything like that. Just look at the distortion plots to compare tweeter A to B and that will ... 
If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
I am deliberately not wading into this discussion.  🤣  
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
This thread has gone far far afield from what I meant to talk about, and I'm going to let it.  You all talk amongst yourselves.  
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
@roadcykler  While some gear is like candy, tastes great but poor long-term diet, let's be clear that the science is only worthwhile if it feeds our emotions. Without emotions, there is really no point in music.

Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
I have a choice, I can either argue about what the definition of "nit picking" is, or the definition of "quasi-anechoic."  Stepping back I'm not sure either argument is worth having.   
Could Class D really be that good?
@lanx0003 - Thanks for responding to a point I was not making. I was trying to say that the subjective "sound quality" cliches that were made in the 1990's about Class D amps no longer apply today.  All the measurements you point out may be accur... 
Could Class D really be that good?
<< sigh>> We really need to move beyond amplifier "class" as meaningful. There are a number of "old" Class-D designs I like much better than some megabuck class-A designs.  The old cliche's about Class D performance have been buried... 
Am I right for this forum?
If you dont mix Fuel in your listening habits I’d like you to leave.   😆😆😆  
ribbons vs domes and sibilance
Also, there’s a new era of Textreme dome tweeters that have come out claiming exceptional resistance to the effects described in the OP’s quote. Will we actually hear it? I have no idea, modern domes are really good already. PS - Like all other d... 
ribbons vs domes and sibilance
Like with any driver, implementation matters.  Modern dome tweeters are far far better than described there, and some ribbons are notoriously splashy.  That is, have a lot of distortion which makes them sound extra airy.  Also, not sure how many r... 
miniDSP SHD integration
Glad I could help you, @baylinor  - You seem to have proven the effects I was talking about, how well-balanced bass output makes it easier to switch music and still have excellent results.  
Should Speaker Manufactures provide a Frequency Response Graph?
PS - So long as you accurately publish the methodology you use to measure I don’t see a problem, even if that method is non-standard. Now, coming to poor conclusions based on measurements, that's kind of ASR's bag.  😂  
Should Speaker Manufactures provide a Frequency Response Graph?
Meh.  As a person with 3 measurement mic's in his house, I wouldn't trust the speaker maker's measurements to begin with, and don't think most would interpret them correctly, and what good is a quasi anechoic (or fully anechoic) measurement when i... 
miniDSP SHD integration
@baylinor if you find yourself adjusting bass levels for music too much you may have some resonances you can tame with EQ if not otherwise. Some music may excite a room mode, which has you reaching for the volume control. Check the AM Acoustics ...
