We're not talking about what is neutral for me. I'm pointing out your useless comparisons of this speaker to cheaper, lesser performing products and simply pointing out this is of little value. I'm not sure what 'objective agenda' you think I'm pushing?Funny that you only included the horizonal orientation while pushing your objective agenda... Anyway, I could careless if it's not neutral enough for you and for the third and final time, welcome you to provide comparable products.
You continue to throw the baby out with the bath water as I understand (enough) the importance of measuring distortion and that manufacture provided specifications can be misleading, but it's not true sensitivity and power handling mean nothing because they have value in being starter points when one is looking for high output speaker. I'll spell it out to be as pedantic; it would truly mean nothing to compare these sort of speakers to those with 79dB sensitivity and 50w RMS.
'While this Arendal speaker seems to objectively perform well, you can pay half the price and get half the performance elsewhere' is what you are saying. DUH.
Again, re-read what I said. I did not say power handling and sensitivity mean nothing, I said they mean nothing WITHOUT distortion measurments. I don't care that a manufacturer advertises X amount of watts and X sensitivity spec if this isn't backed up with distortion testing.
I don't know why you are focused on providing lesser performing product comparisons in this thread? Of course I can find cheaper products that also perform worse.
I've attached the vertical orientation too, again, not exactly great (my opinion)
