Clairity of voice and music, even at loud volumes. Excellent very low frequency response.


Size and high price, but worth it.

With these speakers I'm discovering music all over again. These are just the best speakers I have ever heard. I'm hearing details in familiar music I never knew were there. Voices are so clear I'm able to understand words in songs I've never understood before. And of course the bass is incredable. I added a HT-4 center speaker and HT-3 surrounds for a home theater setup and movie explosions will shake the house, no subwoofer needed or recommended.
They will play amazingly loud with just a 100 watt amplifier but work really well with 500 watts (am using a MC500 amp). Surprisingly you can play them at a very low volume and still hear the details in music quite well. These speakers are very hard to find used but are well worth it. I talked to a owner of a pair who just wouldn't sell them, because he would only consider getting another pair of the same speakers.
