Summary: Although these speakers are highly praised, I can't count myself among the admirers. They fail miserably when reproducing solo piano such as the sonatas of Scarlatti or the partitas & suites of J. S. Bach, or even Chopin. It's a shame that speakers that look as good as these and are as mechanically solid have this problem. I have searched everywhere for similar reports but have found none. Apparently you'll only hear about this from me.
