Summary: Note I'm comparing to the Paradigm Shift A2 speakers. Both are hooked up by Audioquest cinnamon cables and a schiit audio modi dac. I ordered the Paradigm speakers first and I wondered if I made the correct choice. Looking back I did.
Pros: Remote that the Paradigms are missing, subtle front light, multiple hook ups, volume knob on front instead of back like Paradigm.
Cons: No grill, an almost muddy sound, lack of detail for audiophile ears, Bass is not as described in many reviews with or without enhancements, Price doesn't reflect quality.
Summary: Great crisp clear sound and surprisingly low punch for the size of the woofer. I recommend to pair with audioengine d1 and the speaker stands audioengine ds2. However, bit of problem with overheating, which is hopefully gonna be solved with usb cooling fan I just ordered/you should be able to power...
