I am intrigued after reading the review. I have been looking to put together a second system for the bedroom and don't want to go the floor stander route. Want to keep it simple meaning no sub. With a 44Hz bottom this might fit the bill. I have to admit that I am impressed with my Elac12 subs paired with my Maggies so I have an open mind. It has been a challenge as most bookshelf speakers seem to be >50Hz. I wonder how they would sound with an hybrid integrated like the Vincent SV500? Add the DAC and keep it all under 2k? Jazz, Instrumental, smooth evening tunes.
