Introduction: General Information about Stereo Dave's Creation 650 Reference Speakers and Genesis Subwoofer
Many audio designers report that they design their components by listening, making a change, perhaps as small as a resistor, and then listening again. These are the guys you want making your stereo equipment. Even mass market audio equipment can be made to compete with uber-expensive models given the same treatment.
Stereo Daveâ€™s is one of a handful of small companies making a living by performing such modifications to CD players, DVD players and amplifiers.
For speakers, they have their very own unique design.
At the 2007 RMAF, Secrets Editor John Johnson heard a speaker very similar to the Creation 650 but this earlier version was called â€˜The Slateskapeâ€™ because the enclosure was constructed from a mixture of concrete, silica, quartz and newspapers.Â Not surprisingly this mixture proved to be troublesome in mass production.
