Beautiful speakers and very pleased with their sound.

i've been wanting these speakers for a while, but when Crutchfield put the kef ls-50's on a great sale i bought a pair, along with an svs sb3000 sub. i was underwhelmed, especially when i upgraded to mcintosh integrated amp and oppo bdp-205. i really wanted to love the sound but it was pretty flat. i bit the bullet and sold the kefs and bought these admittedly twice as expensive speakers. from the start the music seemed to come to life. also bought the stands and i like the way they attach so securely to the speakers. very happy camper here.
Pros: the sound is heavenly and exactly what i'd hoped for.
Cons: they ain't cheap.

I paired these with a C105 for the center and it sounds beautifully. I auditioned against the entry Bowers and Wilkins 700 series and a similar priced Martin Logan and Elac setup. It was not a hard decision as these speakers are consistent and clear across the board. There is no loud popping or inconsistent tones. Out of the box, they sound like a theater masterpiece. Very ethereal and spacious with great depth. I went between best buy and a local hifi store twice and both times, these beat similar priced competitors hands down. The same Macintosh equipment pushing all speakers that I tested. These things are a jewel, aesthetically pleasing, and the speaker stands mount in a jif complimenting them well. As long as these things are functional, I do not see myself ever purchasing another speaker.
Pros: Classy looking spreadsheets, deep, clear, and concise. No popping high end and covers the full sound spectrum well. Beats similarly priced competitors.
