Summary: We have had these speakers for a few days now, connected (bi-amped) to a Marantz M-CR603 unit. The finish of the speaker cabinets is good, and unlike our previous speakers my wife is happy with their appearance in the living room, sitting on a pair of Mission Stancette stands with the speaker grilles off. The sound is excellent. Smooth, clear and detailed. The bass is well controlled and can sound quite plush at times.
