Should I be worried?

C'est une évidence qu'en généralisant on trouvera toujours des exceptions, merci d'enfoncer cet porte ouverte, qui plus est sur un ton si agréable.

Il n'en reste que je pense qu'il reste des différences "culturelles" que l'on ne peut négliger, même si elles sont aujourd'hui moins importantes qu'elles ne l'étaient il y a encore 10 ou 20 ans.

Et bien disons que je n'ai pas la même appréciation de la généralisation et de l'exception. Je ne faisais que répondre au "In general ..." que je trouve quand même très orienté.
Alors oui on peut toujours regretter que ce ne soit pas mieux, mais je trouve que c'est en nette voie d'amélioration et ailleurs ce n'est pas forcément beaucoup mieux, sans savoir si c'est "en général", mais dans les quelques expériences que j'ai pu avoir.

I had a pair of Totem Dreamcatcher  speakers. I had an extended listening session in the show room and I was most impressed. I made two serious mistakes, actually three. I took my best recorded music to hear what the speakers are capable of. I neglected the fact that the show room was most likely acoustically treated and that my room will sound different. And the third error was that i was listening to the first version and ordered the newer "improved" version that replaced the original version. There was a review in the Stereophile magazine that said they were closest to the sound of electrostatic speakers and many other very nice things. The accompanying measurements were less than stellar and it appears that was the reason for a new version that was supposed to fix that part. I do not know what it was but my first impression at home was very favorable also. After a while I noticed that I simply could not listen to any lower quality recordings.They would simply sound terrible. Even the high quality recordings would make me nervous after a prolonged listening session. There was some very unpleasant (to me) aggression, like too strong  emphasis on the upper mid band or too analytical presentation...I was playing them for a week day and night but nothing has changed. Luckily I was able to return them with no penalty.
I had a similar experience from a pair of my friends  Dalis with their hybrid tweeter (unfortunately don't remember the model). They were very clear and detailed but also very fatiguing for casual listening.
On the other side of the spectrum my LX 16 are very detailed but never fatiguing.
What I mean under the relaxed is that the speaker is not emphasizing the weak points of the recording or the whole system. I hope that my explanation at least makes some sense.

Oui c'est en nette amélioration, je suis d'accord. Probablement en grande partie grâce à l'ouverture de certains marchés à la concurrence, et bien sûr l'ouverture que procure l'e-commerce. Tant mieux !

Thks, that sounds very clear to me. Relaxed vs fatiguing Smile
Relaxed not meaning 'too soft'

Même dans les bureaux de poste ou aux impôts Wink
