That was always my understanding, that the crappiness of these speakers
pretty accurately reflects the crappiness of the typical boombox speaker
that a track will probably be played through. So if you mix something to
sound good on NS10's it probably sounds good in a typical listening
environment, even though the speakers themselves don't qualify as "good".
