Summary: I demo'd these against another pair of speakers at the same price and instantly fell for the look and design. However, once we started playing through them,n there was absolutely no contest. The sound came at you focussed from one point, with the tweeter in the bass cone, made a huge impact on the source of the music.
Summary: So I bought these at my local hifi store because of the services they offer that amazon can't match. But people will buy these from here so I'll give my opinion here. STUNNING. Hooked up to a marantz amp they are breathtaking, especially after a run in period of 24hrs non stop. The bass is heavy yet crisp and not overpowering. And the middles and highs are superb, sitting infront of them listing to music is a hobby in itself, they are completely immersive.
Summary: Delivered safely and quickly after ordering on line.. The speakers are excellent. They are very clear and articulate. Present a sound stage with good imaging on a mixture of music styles. Playing some old favourite CD's they reveal a clarity I have not heard before from the Castle Kendal or JR149 speakers I have used until now. Well worth the money. I am very satisfied with them.
Summary: Of course, you would expect these to be good and they are. Buying new loudspeakers is a balance between cost, cosmetics and performance. I like the idea that these are trimmed down to give you most of the latter and least of the former while the cosmetics are, kind of, assumed. I already had some floorstanding speakers and they were pretty good but these are noticeably different with a lovely sound stage and lots of grunt as well when you need it. Basically, they rock.
Finest detail but care needed to get the very best out of them

Summary: I purchased these recently to go in my refurbished room - a large Victorian room 10 by 4.5 by 3.5m (32'x15'x10'6")complete with bay and windows at both ends. With a hard wood floor, the acoustics were 'quite interesting'. First impressions were not without some concern. However, as an acoustics consultant with over 40 years experience, I sat down and worked out the best idea.
