If I own Kismet Beryllium speakers (the 2 way with one woofer tower)

Tell me what I will gain with the liquids - other than 1 woofer on each side please.

They are $ 5900/ pr,  and this particular walnut burl is appr.  $ 700. our cost...and yes, they are indeed a LOT better than the Kismet's,  as they should be for the extra $....we have had well over a dozen of Kismet trade-ins for the Liquids, and every single one of the guys agrees big time......actually,  we make way too many already, which I didn't plan on doing,  as building speakers takes some time,  and because of their internal 5 chamber bracings,  it's a pain in the ass.....but totally worth it.

Beautiful looking speakers, maybe the best I've seen. They're super nice, without the extreme fancy schmanciness a lot of manufacturers like, almost tacky looking sometimes.
The first pairs of Liquids you showed here were just as nice.

Took my question and added that second woofer, I bet they are just amazing!!!!
I am happy as fu*k all with my Energy RC-70's, best speaker I have ever heard, so they are staying forever!!

Klaus, still working on the cash, I tried to sell with no takers, so I'll hang on to them and call when ready, our property tax keeps fuc*ing up any chance I get to save cash, every time I get close we need to use it for our tax. It's a shame, so much money , tax, tax, tax.

Hi, please tell us about your speakers. How do you like them, etc. sound, cost? How's that tweeter? Can you post a picture?

Are you asking me about my pair as a customer or Klaus about them?

I love them,
I think they sound terrific. The BE tweeter is excellent,
I like soft domes but dont like metal domes, I tend to find ribbons thin,
I like the BE tweeter, it is NEVER harsh.

They look modest in the room, and I like the non parallel side walls aesthetically.






They have great bass, they image well,

I have no complaints.

I think they are $4200 for the base model, then there are another $1000 plus you can put into better internals.

The Liquids, the subject of this thread, are the next step up, they are a 2.5 way incorporate another woofer, and are purported to be a huge jump up in sound because they free up one of the woofs to just cover the midrange. YMMV.

Klaus' speakers, all of his stuff, they are universally regarded as amazing values for the money, so I dont think you could pick "wrong" from among his stuff. 

He likes MUSIC, I think his speakers can and do tick off the "audiophile" qualities that people talk about here, but
personally, I like that they sound good.
