That there are folks who think the CLR is a little bass heavy and is not the holy grail as has been promoted on this and other forums?
What is the big deal?
Folks are entitled to their own opinions and gear preferences based on their own experiences.
I have the CLR's and the presets you post translate really well.
From that I would assume the Matrix stuff is also a great offering.
And I agree being a guitar player / performer in 2013 is rad. The technology available is mind blowing.
Yeah... the only thing that bites, is that the guitars that USED to be cheap in the 80's are now "vintage"... :-/ LP Customs used to be $1200.... now !? yikes..
Tell me about it.
I had a real burst that I sold in 1974 because I needed money for college. If I would have held it for another 20 years I could have financed all of my kids college educations and then some!
Based on this video, by no means an optimal evaluation platform, the CLR appears more transparent and linear than the Matrix or Camper. In some areas the Matrix sounded a little boxy in the mid to low bass. A loop would have been a better feed for this test comparison. As said, based on this vid.
And you can detect that level of detail from the video? Wow - you must have good ears then...
No, it wasn't. I was in the room. Even when I'm listening to the original video now without the horrible YT phasing there is no such difference.
Sorry but this is only wishful thinking.
Well I don't have either of these, so I'm definitely not biased, but I'm definitely critically listening, since I plan on buying in the near future and threads like this help to evaluate to a small extent. Even blindfolded the difference is evident in this clip if you can't hear it in this clip then I guess I do have better hearing than you. The wishful thinking part is the claim of there being no distinguishable difference.:?
The main difference (which is noticeable in the clip and by the folks in the room), was that the CLR added or cut to much bass with the DSP (especially when used as prescribed).
However.....I will not argue that the CLR sounded inconsistent based on positioning (while using the recommended DSP). That I definitely agree with.
LVC - I'm honestly not trying to stir the pot, just saying that these videos are just a really tough way to judge a speakers freq response (and accuracy as being flat). ...I'm hoping to hear some candid feedback from folks that get to audition both of these at Axe Fest.
Maybe I am missing something here but wouldn't the objective of having a switch setting for different position be so that the cab sounds the same regardless of how you set it up for the same patch?
If you need to dial your patch in for that position and DSP setting -- then why bother with a DSP at all?
Again, I thought the CLR sounded pretty damn good in the video and comparable in tone quality to the other speakers demoed.
