The Genesis Effect

genesis2Simply put: Genesis is life, from lifelessness.” — Dr. Carol Marcus, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Various years ago, Arnie Nudell and Paul McGowan ran Genesis Technologies, producing high-end loudspeakers.  Paul is now the “P” at PS Audio and one of his self-appointed activities is producing a daily commentary appropriately called “Paul’s Posts.” I get them by email and highly recommend that anyone interested in high-end audio matters should should do the same.  While you’re at it, register to be able to add your comments and participate in the discussions that Paul’s Posts regularly give rise to.  (By the way, registered users can post comments here, too.)

Yesterday’s offering by Paul, “A day in Sea Cliff,” included this bit:

Arnie believed (as do I) that loudspeakers should be full range to the best of their abilities – adding extra boxes to make them reproduce music properly was a wrong headed idea that placed additional burdens on customers they didn’t need.

I’ve often given voice to precisely that same position over the years.  For lifelike rather than lifeless music listening, two full-range speakers, a 2.0 system if you will, are the ideal.  They’ll do a great job of supporting video entertainment, too.

Here’s a link to Paul’s complete post that includes the statement above.  While you’re on that page, you can click on the Get Paul’s Posts link over at the right to order up your subscription.
