I am looking into these speakers as they would be great for a 3rd setup; however, every time I heard them they were too fatiguing and hard to listen to for long periods of time. The first pair I heard (at PolkFest 2011) was just extremely bright and too painful to listen to on tracks such as Sarah Brightman - Naturaleza Muerta and La Wally from her Timeless album which are my reference tracks.
For those of you that have these speakers, does the following track sound bright / fatiguing at moderate levels?
I'd like to pair these with either an Anthem D2v 3D pre and A5 amplifier, Theta Casablanca III with Dreadnaught III amplifier, or a Crestron Procise PSPHD and 7x400 amplifier; so they will be powered by serious gear.
Any opinions would be great, TIA!
