Funktion One's Tony Andrews speaks on good sound... Video
« on: January 27, 2011, 11:30:46 am »

I've never heard Funktion-One speakers but I like what this guy has to say about his product. He sounds pretty passionate about sound and not like he's trying to flood the market with cookie-cutter run-of-the-mill speakers like many manufacturers.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knUnWf2Lh9k

He also has a lot to say about DJ's and our unfortunate use of mp3's for music playback.  I wish I could run all .wav or AIFF music file formats but that's not what the record pools are putting out, plus, the original production on 90% of music today is hot garbage, so what's the use...

I've heard Funktion-one on several different systems, and it is OUtstanding... It is also a VERy Good Live music system as well.  There is a festival here in SoCal that used a fairly big F-1 setup for both live band & DJ, and it hit really hard.  Very smooth in the top, and arrayed well for wider coverage.  and the subs..Oh My.

Very good stuff, very expensive.

Iain -

None in particular, just a pointer to a previous discussion.

good video,

As Tony Andrews says "The sound [quality] in the world generally is going down"

Couldn't agree more and I blame the iPod with its cheap earbuds and people using 128kbits to cram as many tunes onto them as possible for causing the majority of that decline in recent years

If people don't have a proper reference how can they make a qualified judgement as to what it should sound like?

The more that happens, the more we end up in a downward spiral with people referencing to the shit that went before

Until they come across a properly deployed system that blows away their expectations

Which is where we come in...

But then they will think that all it takes is "more watts" to get that sound.  And they will be sadly mistaken.

It is the combination of many different factors-most of which they don't understand.

Heard many many F1 system and am 50/50 on them..... The F218 are crap (honk honk honk) and the RES4 & 5 are nice when setup right :)

Asking club owners to ask there dj's to play WAV files only is a joke lol. Yes in a perfect world dj would use WAV files but they don't end of story. Also a lot of tracks sound crap whether there MP3 or WAV anyways its all in the production.

There's a lot of F1 system around London / UK but there not really used for live music and there not rated as ''the best'' unlike Meyer, Nexo, d&b etc etc ...
