While sound preference may be a matter of opinion, neutrality is not. Even if I will lose the top end of my hearing range some 20-30 years later, by that time I will still consider the GS10s or GS20s very bright as they will still sound brighter than the original sound I will hear in reality 20-30 years later. True, I will probably prefer the GS20s by then because the brightness will compensate my loss of the top end, but that will not make them neutral sounding like the original sound I will be hearing in reality. The hearing ability of anyone at a given age is pretty constant, yet the speakers are the variable.FrankHarveyHiFi said:We'll all have our ways of determining whether a speaker is bright or not, and that'll be based on our tastes. Someone who is losing the top end of their hearing range may prefer a brighter speaker, other people might just prefer that type of sound. Even if everyone's hearing was exactly the same, we'd all still have personal preferences.
Do you find your receiver to be bright? Neither do I, but some people seem to, for whatever reason!
Speakers sound brighter than the original sound are bright speakers, and speakers sound warmer than the original one are warm. It has nothing to do with the difference in our hearing ability or personal preferences. You have very rights to prefer the GS10s to the Dynaudios as it is a matter of personal taste, but I need to point out that the sound of the GS10s are really much brighter than the original sound.
I know Alex is a great guy and you are a good seller, but I just expect some more objective comments from you - it's my personal preference
