Fabulous sound detail but very directional radiator
30 September 2014
Summary: Fabulous sound detail and quality workmanship, but be aware that as all electrostatic plane radiators, these speakers are very (!) directional. The proper listening location is very stongly defined, with easily perceptible loss of quality when outside the correct alignment. In practical terms, you need to be at the proper height and on the proper direction to get the real benefit of this great device (think along the perpendicular to the plane of the grid radiator).
Summary: Great sounding piece of gear when setup correctly. They image outside the box all the time and create an expansive soundstage. Instruments are placed beautifully on the stage and voices are tangible. I am very satisfied with these speakers and find them to be reliable under various humidity conditions so far. I have them about 4 feet out from the rear wall and about 8 feet apart with me sitting about 12 feet back.
Summary: Just picked these up today at Best Buy for a gd price of 1400 for the pair. Who says that u cant bargain for a deal anymore? in this economy its a buyers market, so please peeps ask and u shall receive. But the question im asking myself will these sound engaging with the system im pairing it with, who knows only time will tell.
Summary: This is a great introduction to a whole new way of listening. I can't believe how this sounds much more like people in the room playing music for me versus sound obviously coming out of a box. Details, vocals, I have never heard before or was too blurred to make out just snapped into place as if it was always there. At first it was strange as I have used conventional speakers for years as these just diappeared and a whole stage opened in front of me.
