While the professional sound world relies heavily on loudspeaker specifications in systems design and layout, the choice of loudspeakers for home listening is likely to be the result of a far more personal set of experiences and associations. This can be inferred from a casual reading of high fidelity manufacturers’ literature and advertisements.
