Summary: Words cannot express how beautiful these speakers sound. They also look great. Please note that while they excel in highs,and midrange, you would require a quality subwoofer [ my preference is SVS ] to enhance your bass.
Summary: I have owned a clear-oak finished version of these speakers for four years or so. The advanced aluminum/magnesium tweeter used here is fabulous and integrates perfectly with the mid-woofer. Set up correctly you'll get complete transparency, an unimposing tonal balance and great horizontal imaging that goes wider than the speakers are. The images are however not very tall. I find them very engaging for music and great home theater speakers.
