Bottom Line:   
Purchased these about three weeks ago from Music Direct, clearance @$399. Have been curious about Epos speakers for a while, and figured at this price it was worth a shot. Compared to the bookshelves I replaced (customs with ribbon tweeters) these are extremely more detailed. During the first week I was ready to send them back, as I was having a hard time getting used to their aggressive, almost harsh sound. Since then, either the speakers have broken in or I got used to their sound- or both. I now appreciate their detail and great dynamics- and good bass for bookshelves. I swapped the customs back- only briefly- and they now sound somewhat muddy in comparison. Given the price, build quality, sound and two separate baffles, I can't imagine a better value for the money. I like them so much I bought a used set of Epic 5s and am awaiting their arrival :-)

Bottom Line:   
My favorite speakers were my Epos M16. My least favorite speakers are the Epos Epic 2. I did not expect a $799 speaker to sound like a $1,499 speaker, but I did expect them to sound like a $799 speaker. Imaging and balance were nowhere near my M16 or my more comparable PSB B25. The new tweeter was not the smooth presentation quoted in reviews. These were bought as demos from a high-end dealer and they were like new. Slightly broken in, but definitely broken in. This is the second time the same reviewer raved about a product that I think does not live up to the hype.

Bottom Line:   
These are truly a rare find.

They replace a pair of Joseph Audio rm25si floorstanders in my system, and I don't know how it's possible for what I paid, but they absolutely embarrass them all the way around. I am driving them with a pair of Linn LK85's. I can only guess it's something with the crossover, in tandem with the size of the cabinet (a little bigger than the average bookshelf). The components appear completely pedestrian and the veneer is vinyl, for god's sake. Unbelievable detail and imaging, however. Clean, satisfying bass as well. Just a great, great speaker - these are something special.
