Bottom Line:   
Beautiful and very quality hi-end contruction. Evo2/40 is good front speakers for home theater. The separation and detail on these speakers for classical and vocal music is the beast. But for pop and rock music for this money its really poor sound quality.

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic speakers for everyday listening. Running a marantz sr7400 & good quality wiring etc, these blow away just about every other speaker in this price range - they are beautifully warm yet bright, have nicely detailed highs and warm, smooth, if lacking a little detail bass. They absolutely shine when playing ballads or live music, it feels like you have the band playing in your bedroom. You really dont need a subwoofer unless you want dvd '.1' Dont let the 6.5in woofers fool you, they work in sync and would leave most 12 inch woofers for dead. After listening to b&w's, castles, jbl's etc. etc. these are by far the smoothest speakers that will never tire you even at high volume. The smaller B&W's (i cant remember the model - RRP about $1900aud) in particular sound like a 2 inch driver in an aluminium can in comparison.

Bottom Line:   
First heard these in a store whilst buying Kimber-cable to bi-wire my new Emerald 97's. I was really impressed- they had a large, clear, open sound compared to the PSB and Dali's I also listened to. They made the other speakers sound boxy in comparison. I found a pair of demo's online a few months later, sold the Emerald 97's (which I really liked, but were darker, boomier, and less clear-sounding), and have been really happy with them. They sound great with home theater as well as music- haven't found a need for a subwoofer as the bass is deep and clear.
I also own a pair of the Evo 10's (I use them as rears, and as secondary monitors for recording) and while they sound fine, the 40's have a bigger, fuller, more open sound that really makes music come alive.
