Well personally I dont get too excited what goes on here re;opinions etc...there is often a 'variation' between conotation and denotation in posts ( what people write and actually mean ,and then there is your own interpetation of posts).
I can appreciate the question,the specs and all the goobly gook which gets tossed around in audiophilia .
I like to trust my ears,see if I really enjoy the speakers not just the specs. ...there are alot of products and sellers out there ,the funny thing is I trust Vinnie and Louis with their own perceptions,dialogue and skill....so if I was going to invest in something longterm and take a gamble on
it will be the guy who I know isnt going to screw me over for a few bucks.
Louis and Vinnie are really cool nice guys. FYI I could probably construct my own cabinets etc ,but what i am buying here with Louis is decades of his own experience. Louis goes to the big shows,has made hundreds of speakers and listens to his customers.
He is a virtual ' one man show' and obviously good enough to pay the bills. I admire that .Alot of shops get to big too fast and eventually fold because of it.To me he has the formula of success.If not he has no lunch money.
I can venture in spending dozens of hours and try to copy something similair to his designs but I doubt I would be able to imitate what Louis can do, even in a rough box.I have worked constuction and am very knowledgable with tools. Speakers to me are not just a matter of box building but of synergy and art.There are alot of components that need critical placement,dampening and modification.If something is a little off or not perfect I know the end result would be missing.
I am not criticizing you DYI guys out there. I am all for saving a few bucks with a hobby but I well aware of my own abilities. So its all a matter of personal choice. I am also not one to jump on the 'Newest product bandwagon' either. The thing with Louis is I 'know' he doesn't spit out his products without some thought.
To me thats what important
trusting those you can trust....not just how flat the frequency curve is.....
I am happy with the Mini me but i may sell ithem ,if not they will be hooked to my pc for a futre endeavor .Since the B200s cost roughly 10x as much as the Minime's I am looking forward too much more.
