Bottom Line:   
These are imposing speakers by any standards and there is a certain pride factor involved with owning this level of equipment. Having said that, these speakers are not for the faint of heart systems. These take an extremely effective power source with enough punch to make them function, more than most amps on the market can handle. I have owned some very nice speakers previously and speak from experience on this note (pun intended).

Musically, these are simply astounding. The silky smoothness they project is amazing. The mids are a delight and, after breaking in correctly, the bass is excellent. The line array idea is not fully developed here, but it works sufficiently well to be noticeable better than other styles of speakers. The highs are not as clean as I would prefer, but never are bright or harsh. This does equate to the smooth presentation of the many red book discs that can be brash and over bearing.

The cabinets are stout and rigid and appearances are worth the price of admission. The small amount of woodwork works well for most decorators. The footprint is a godsend for most of us.

This is a most usual speaker in that it is so listenable across a broad spectrum of music. Regardless of what you ask them to play, they separate well, punch when asked and never strain. I gave up Genesis speakers to use these and am happy to have done so.
