Incredibly wonderful loudspeakers.

These loudspeakers were smokin' right out of the box. Now, after nearly a year of use I would buy them again, all considered. There is some talk of not quite enough lower end reproduction. I have them in a 750 square foot room with hardwood floors and little thought for room arrangement but for speaker placement. I listen to them flat and am often surprised at their beauty and depth for most music. Same for the high end that has been described as occasionally tinny and over loud, I appreciate the light touch on a cymbal that comes through. I must say that when I am listening to something more complex, say, orchestral music (or Shamal Wind), I control the tone a bit by lowering the treble a hair and increasing the base a little. I am driving them with a Vincent SP-331 amplifier and using a Vincent SA-32 for control. I use 12 gauge wire. If you have the room these are amazing loudspeakers. I wish I had a bigger space to let these babies fly.

Pros:

Cons: You need plenty of room.

Best in their price range

These are exceptional. I was able to listen to them and compare them with similarly priced speakers in a high-end audio store, and these by far were the most pleasing to my ear. Build quality is top notch - you can feel and touch the quality. The sound is BIG in my opinion. Bass is full and punchy and there is definitely no need for a sub. The clarity is stellar. Mid-range is smoooooth. I am in love with these speakers.

Pros: Build quality Sound quality Efficient

Cons: HEAVY - but who cares.

All Around Awesome

Crutchfield customer from Christiansburg, VA on 3/24/2019

These are exceptionally well made speakers. Walnut wood veneer is not over-finished, leaving a realistic and clean look. Leather work on front and back is cleanly finished, and compliments the speakers well. Glass top adds a nice contrast and also a balance of sorts with the bottom metal stand. And the sound? Buttery smooth, and I mean smooth. All integrated very well, and the base belies the specs given. Deep and expansive when necessary, tight and crisp when called upon to be so. Not at all bright, but well-integrated sound. I use a Yamaha RN803 to power these and could not be more pleased.

Pros: Smooth sound, outstanding finish, classic looks, and deeper base than expected.

Cons: small plastic covers for carpet spikes.
