NOTE: This isn't about speaker brands, but a basic characteristic of speakers.
I don't have NEARLY the experience listening to speakers that many of you do. So help me out here. I do love fantastic vocals, and something that attracted me to my current speakers (Devore Nines) right away (and some others I auditioned back in 2012) was the engaging and highly transparent (my language) midrange especially on female vocals (think Nora Jones, Holly Cole). The vocals really stand out in the sound stage. I heard this too on some Martin Logan electrostatics; very airy midrange.
But 6 years later, I'm finding that a listening session of over 30 minutes leaves me fatigued. At volume that gets me really engaged, I think that the midrange is what's fatiguing, despite how "musical: it is.
I listened to what reviewers say is a much more "accurate" speaker (Magico A3), and while I immediately found the midrange (female voices) better integrated into the total sound stage, they were not immediately toe-tapping engaging. (But it was in a very dead audio room; tbd in my home.)
Is this a common trade-off??
My theory as I listen to more speakers is that I need to find a balance with the midrange between the 'fatiguing' and 'boring' ends of the spectrum. Should I be thinking about this in other or additional ways?? Better vocabulary?? TIA!
