Went to Tweeter in Nashua, NH and purchased a pair of LSi15s a few hours ago. I'm "demoing" them and in all likelihood they'll be returned within 30 days. I'm going to try to get a pair of Dynaudio's from Goodwin's next weekend to take home for a night.
And there is always the difficulty of getting my ears on some Tylers. Gotta get some listen on before I make a firm commitment. As I had done before I listened to the Focals 826v at Tweeter. It struck me more this time than last that for different music I prefered it over the LSis. For example female vocals or some live music I had played there was more presence and a bit more "air".
On a couple of "Rock" tracks from studio albums I really preferred the LSis for that more laid back sound.
At the "new" price the wife isn't a fan though she did say, "This sounds really good" after just a few minutes of listening to some Eva Cassidy.
OK time to change discs! Too bad the kids are sleeping and I can;t crank it up. I've also got one of the Parasound p/hp850 on the way to try out instead of the passive! FUN!
