Bottom Line:   
This is a review for Cliffhanger CHS-2 / W2 speaker combo. These speakers are excellent. You get the full spectrum of sound (not like most of the speakers out there where you get treble and mids, but no base). The sound that these speakers produce is just amazing. It’s 3D like. It is as though the music surrounds you. The only speaker with similar sound reproduction are Vandersteen 2Ce – 3A, but when I was auditioning them, they were hooked up to electronics that was ten times more expensive then mine (I have Jolida JD1501A integrated amp), and Vandersteen speakers are bulky and ugly.
I consider myself a stereophile, and even though I do not know all the cool lingo that “stereophiles” use, this is how you can distinguish good sounding speakers from the average ones. Take several of your CDs with different kind of music to a store where they sell Grado headphones (125 version or higher). Listen to your CDs. Now check what pair of speakers can match the sound (quality, instruments you couldn't heard before, dimensions) that you’ve heard through the headphones. I guarantee that Cliffhangers CHS-2 / W2 will be on the top of your list. You can read a review for these speakers at http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/das13.htm and get some specs at http://www.audio-ideas.com/reviews/loudspeakers/cliffhanger.html. To the manufacturer of these speakers – get you web site going. People need to know about your great products.

Bottom Line:   
Pete, Catmando and the others are right...these guys are rude and not helpful. I had to hang-up on Ian when I called just to ask a simple question...he was that rude. Their speakers may sound great but I will not support this company.

Bottom Line:   
Using the CHS-2 W2's and just love them. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for speakers in the 2-5K range. To the 3 previous reviewers: shame on you for reviewing a product you haven't tried or even seen! Ian is a great guy who is very kind to people who are kind to him.
