Summary: Also purchased a pair of Epos Epic 2 from Music Direct at the fantastic price of 399. I am driving them with the 4 amps from my Paradigm Shift A2's. I am going to have to spend a lot more money to beat this wonderful system. I love these wonderful speakers!
Summary: Just purcahsed a set of Epic 2s from Music Direct and hooked them up to my PrimaLuna tube pre and amp. Initially I hated the sound and after a week I realized that these speakers are very revealing and exact. If the recording is good it will sound good if not-well its bad!
Summary: Purchased these about three weeks ago from Music Direct, clearance @$399. Have been curious about Epos speakers for a while, and figured at this price it was worth a shot. Compared to the bookshelves I replaced (customs with ribbon tweeters) these are extremely more detailed.
Summary: I bought these speakers from Amazon a year plus ago. In the mean while my entire audio system has gone through a bit of churn as I have upgraded. However, there is one thing I haven't changed and I don't intend to - it is the EPIC 2s.
Summary: My favorite speakers were my Epos M16. My least favorite speakers are the Epos Epic 2. I did not expect a $799 speaker to sound like a $1,499 speaker, but I did expect them to sound like a $799 speaker. Imaging and balance were nowhere near my M16 or my more comparable PSB B25.
Summary: These are truly a rare find. They replace a pair of Joseph Audio rm25si floorstanders in my system, and I don't know how it's possible for what I paid, but they absolutely embarrass them all the way around. I am driving them with a pair of Linn LK85's.
