    Omnis, Pointsources, Concentric Arrays, Shaded (curved) Line Arrays are all I can think of right now.

      That's the million dollar question and why so more loudspeaker models out there than any other other product. I'm wondering though whether it's what the speaker does, doesn't do or does incorrectly that bothers people the most and determines their final selection for a reference transducer?

        On the ps audio forums there were two people who were Drs of audiology . One makes a device sold to make our manic surround us . He has in home an array of speakers where he sits precisely In One position. The pint of this is not surround sound , it's about real really real . He plays ans attends live unamplifoed events and claims hearing music not in its purist forms . They claim we hear in way that is learned over a lifetime . And being exposed to music Ina pure sense must be maintained to keep,this really real state of mind . So we are what we hear Daily it seems. According to them and I do agree in some ways our beloved music is not real and is just reproduction that just fools us in ways we have learned too. Our site works this way too. Each note is compiled and compared to our brains audio memories on the fly . My kid plays a Piano no matter how good I think things are it's not like his piano , but they also state that magic we know will sound more real as its easier for our brains to find a match . It's why when I hear live unamplified manic at times it becomes a blend making it very hard to pick out notes. For this reason our speakers are so much an individual like and dislike . As for my love of line source it's been for many many years . For my small brain it's the only kind that makes speakers disappear . It is also why I must like ES and full pain palmers like apogee types .

          You have raised a whole bunch as Mark might say a whole can of whoop ass! Let's take the brain first since it as Woody Allen might say "is my second favorite organ."

          I think one has to understand that all skills, be they or the music, language, math or motor quality, are inexorably linked by several factors. One of those is that there are specific periods we go through childhood where we have to acquire certain skills. (take for instance motor skills: if you don't learn to catch a ball at 8, you may end up the rest of your life catching the ball with your face!) IIRC, there were papers years ago suggesting that perfect pitch was something that was obtained in childhood from listening to music. Then at 12, our brains prune the connections that aren't used and myelinate or strengthen the connections we do use. That's why for instance, learning a language after 12 or 13 is so much harder than when you are young. (Lately some research has shown that schizophrenia, a disease that occurs in the late teens, is an example of pruning neural connections gone awry.)

          And the same applies to music. Now that doesn't mean it's impossible as researchers in Germany and Israel have been showing that it is possible for persons, say with physical injuries, to reach and reactivate those secondary neural networks but it takes a long time. So there's no doubt that our childhood experiences have a huge impact on our later life experiences with music in my opinion.
