It absolutely does not.
Introduction A recurring theme on ASR is whether or not the various measured qualities of the devices are audible. In this post, I'll present some clear and visual thresholds for when those imperfections can be considered a potentially audible concern. I will not explain the basics of amp/DAC...www.audiosciencereview.com
We'd like 85. This amp is very cheap and very close. If you want to spend more money you can get better, but you don't.
You probably need to read this article - it gives a more positive impression than we're giving you here (but deals mainly with a different version of the speaker), and a good idea of the faults involved. It comes from a reliable source.
A blog for audiophiles about more objective topics. Measurements of audio gear. Reasonable, realistic, no snakeoil assessment of sound, and equipment.archimago.blogspot.com
The measurements for other models at the bottom of the page shows you what yours are doing. They switched to cheaper drivers and the results are slightly worse, as you might expect.
And no matter what amp you use, it won't stop the driver mismatch or cone breakup from happening. Listening at low volume may help though. Tney may not be so bad subjectively as you are using them, as you say.
85 might be OK because they're not very efficient.
Those speakers are different than mine - the crossover doesn't have a coil on the woofer. Other specs could be different too, but even if they're not, I'd wager my version is later with an added coil on the woofer to fix the trough in response between 2 and 3kHz. Proper driver integration is important and these speakers have it! At least my version does lol. They also have great off-axis response from the small LF driver diameter.
I know what good 2-3kHz range is supposed to sound like - my most listened to speaker is ATC SCM20 Pro PSL Mk II (completely different tweeter and redesigned woofer and completely different enclosure than the aged thing with similar name reviewed here). It now has their S-Spec tweeter which is flat and damped and damn near perfect in its design. It's offered in their best speakers which rival the price of good new cars (yeah, price isn't the only indicator of performance, but they're all about driver design).
So yeah, 18dB butterworth at 2.1kHz to the similarly excellent midbass driver they engineered. Anyway, low distortion, best integration: my baseline.
