The thread starts:   We were at a Christian rock concert last night and heard 7 or 8 bands. It was a pretty spectacular night. The sound system was ok, too much bass and bass drum. It was very loud, shirt rattling loud. I enjoyed it but could not do that every day.

One thing that dawned on me was how live sound is so different to studio sound. I have a pair of la scala and they come the closest to recreating this sound at modest sound levels. I would not consider them to be the most accurate speaker I own but the come the closest to recreating live sound.

Does that make them high fidelity or are they just gimmicky? It seems to me that live sound is the actual representation of the atrist's intentions. Am I off base here?
