    They sound very good for their size. The tweeter is very, very sweet-sounding.
    I am still a little puzzled by their price, but not to the point to say they're outrageously expensive. They are expensive for rather ordinary-looking little two-way, ported bookshelf speakers, though, you know? Other than being rear-ported, the form factor's pretty evocative of the ELAC Debut B6.2-whatever things, e.g.

    Do they sound better? Yes. How much better per $ is the question I can't really muse upon.

    I wonder how they'd compare to the wired morph of the KEF LS-50?

    oops, I should not post L200 comments in this thread, should I?

    Following directions/coloring inside the lines was never my best thing. You can kinda tell that I was never in the military. :#

    Can we get an update? I need to know when my time is getting close, so I can be ready to get the most out of the time I have. I have no idea who has the speakers at the moment.

    Thanks

  • I’m in and will send info.

    I have one question Jesse.

    If two participants are really close and willing to DRIVE to meet (and save a chance of shipping damage), can that be done?

    IE if someone in a Chicago or Louisville is willing to meet someone from Indy at a mutually beneficial location..... is that allowed?

    You better get cookin' then, I believe you need 100 posts min. to be in.

    ...and yes, handing off to another is acceptable over shipping.
