Anyone who can't tell the difference between Meyer and JBL SRX should be doing lights.
One of my most favorable gig's I mixed was a UPA1P rig and I loved the sound of it. Very clear, amost loud enough for the 500 people in attendance and NO ear fatigue. I have never hear an SRX rig sound nearly as good but I have heard SRX give me some serious ear fatigue.
What I said is "most people won't hear the difference", and I still believe that is true.
I agree with you. A bad band/soundman can sound just as bad a on a Meyer system. My experience on Meyer systems is limited, but it is just a speaker - just one part of a system and if you are going to invest in a system where all the components are equal in quality to Meyer, then you better be working with bands that demand that and are willing to pay for it!
I submit a poor operator will have much worse day on a high quality system than on something that does not respond as well. Case in point: for those of us who were around when line arrays began to replace 48 box hangs of point and shoot, the lesser skilled FOH mixers had a hard time in general. Why? There was less to hide behind, if the line array was a worthy system. Some of the precision point and shoots exhibited coherent behavior if set up properly (think Flashlight), but in general if someone used to mixing on a big pile of 850s were suddenly on V-DOSC, that's like having to stand downstage center, drop your pants and expose yourself. There's nothing to hide behind. Change the EQ ever so slightly, you hear it. Microphone bleed causing "phasing", you hear it. On most of the old systems there was so much interference those issues were, well, non-issues. Ask anyone who has been around - we heard amazing shows on 850s, S4s, Prism, Lab-Q whatever. But it takes someone with real skills to transition from that type of system to a linear, mostly coherent (in the horizontal plane :-) system. Food for thought....

If you are playing clubs <250 (which most people are), then you are wasting your money on Meyer IMHO.
