That was the pair that made their debut at THE Show Newport and absolutely blew away the crowd.
Dynamic, smooth, engaging, detailed, effortless, they pretty much have it all. When Steve Nugent set up his measuring gear in the room to check for room modes, I was watching the display and could hardly believe my eyes. Even in that tiny hotel room, the only deviation from ideal were modes at 40Hz and 80Hz. The rest of the spectrum was textbook flat and smooth. Steve commented that they presented him with the smoothest in-room response of any speaker he'd ever used with his incredible Empirical DAC, and he's used a lot of very highly respected speakers.
They'll run on everything from 9W SETs to 500W solid state depending on how much drywall cracking you want to endure.
