    That's basically (bassically?) true. Electrostatic ribbon speakers are the newest thing, and they're fabulous for mid to high range and they have the advantage of being a line source instead of a point source which makes them somewhat less directional. But even our six foot tall ribbon speakers have conventional cone woofers in their bottom.

    However, I don't think woofers have to be as large as was once thought. When I first started playing electric bass guitar in the early 1970s, cabinets with one giant speaker were in vogue. I had an 18 inch speaker and I knew guys with 24's. (This was of course when you could play a club gig with a 75-watt amplifier instead of the 400 watts everyone now uses to destroy their fans' hearing and add $300 a month to the club's electric bill.) Today, they just use an array of 12's and there seems to be no detectable difference.

    I heard that the blue-ray DVD will pack more sound tracks and required a revamp of Amplifier design, that means we got to upgrade our amplifier when the blue-ray format becomes common and replaces the current DVD9.
