I do hope the prices don't go up any time soon. Am planning to change my setup when I move to a new apartment later in the year - and the Bhaavas are one of the speakers I am keen on.You never know if the price will be increased for this speaker soon. Once that happens, there is going to be a mad scramble and whole new perspectives to discussions
The reason i asked was to understand that most full-range drivers do not measure well, but they sound astonishingly great than the multi-driver counterpart in most cases. I wanted to check if Rethems also fall in the same league or is in a league apart. Hence there will always be no or very few measured response for any FR speakers.Hari, a Stereophile reviewer has made that statement. So I don't think anybody on this forum can answer that question. And this comes from the magazine that you regard highly and consider is objective in its review
In the past too, a Stereophile reviewer found the Trishna to be the best in the sub USD 5000 category. Also Art Dudley, one of Stereophiles most respected reviewers has praised the Saadhanas very highly.
Will read this on the weekend. But again no graphs for me to analyze to form my perspective. Luckily i can visit your home for an subjective listening and will plan some time around July. Currently completely occupied with GST hyeah:
It means the low end behaves like a subwoofer below 100Hz and the full-range operate above 100Hz in a Hybrid (TL + Horn) loading. It will be very interesting to check its step response to check phase coherence between the woofer and full-ranger. Subjective listening cannot confirm this only objective measurement will be able to do it.Hari, the Bhava has a built in bass module with its own amplifier. So do all Rethm models. Some of them have active crossover and some passive. In all models, the full range unit operates with no cutting of the bass while the bass module just fills the lower octave. So technically none of them are single drivers in the true sense of that word. For measurements you need to check with Stereophile and see if they provide you with any.
