What are we objectivists missing?
  djones51 We can measure the audible spectrum for humans. We can even measure the spectrum for dogs and dolphins so I have no idea what your asking for. Thyname +1 You are confusing "listening" skills with "hearing" abilities. Not sure if on ... 
First impressions of the Isoacoustic Gaia 1’s
Thanks Bdp24. I have the Gaia III on one set of speakers and they were a nice improvement on carpet over concrete in my basement. And so I wanted the Gaia II on my other speakers also. Now I will get the pods and make my own out riggers. Nice and ...
