This is a question I’ve been trying to figure out for a while. What exactly, beyond ability to run on lower power, are the sonic differences between High Sensitivity and low sensitivity speakers?
I’m trying to figure out a home theatre/listening set up and I keep seeing arguments from both camps (high sensitivity/Lowpower-set-tube and Low sensitivity/HighpowerAmp) but I’m unclear as to the benefits of either and I’m not sure how “damping factor” works.
Something like A Tekton Lore/Perfect Set 15, Zu Omen/Decware HP-1 Radial allows me to run with a smaller amp, either solid state or tube. Plus I get the general benefit of being front ported which tends not to be a thing with low sensitivity speakers. Because of limitations on my space I don’t have the room to pull my speakers out more than a foot at most
