Need to ask you all an important question, that I have asked in other forums, but it wouldn't hurt to get the opinion of the gaming community
Nowadays technology wise, everything is evolving rapidly. Computers at least double their speed each year, get upgraded with better more efficient chips, as well as high resolution screens along with improved battery life. In 5 years from now they will be at least 32 times as fast as they are today (2*2*2*2*2=32) and there are likely to be even more advanced technological breakthroughs, maybe even holographic displays, who knows.
As for speakers, have we (as in manufacturers) yet to scratch the surface in terms of innovation and advancement i.e will audio equipment have improved in 5 years the same way computers will or have the concepts of acoustics in producing sound already been firmly grasped and there is only room left for minor improvement. Are advancements in sound dynamics incremental (i.e JH Freqphase) or is the relatively new Freqphase addition revolutionary?
To summarise, are speakers constantly improving with time or have the limits of reproducing sound quality already been reached?
As time goes forward speakers are becoming more efficient, adding more features and coming in smaller packages. That said, my parents have a set of bookshelf speakers that are at least 20 years old at this point and still sing with the best of them. Can't say the same about a 20 year old computer.
