    I think that the 2000 is somewhat variable, I have 4 pairs of speakers that came with the 2000. Certain ones sounded better than others, but they all were less than great, with one big exception. I have some Monitor 5s that will serve as my L&R fronts in my first, and very modest foray into home theater. I've found that the 2000 reproduces movie sounds and dialog much better than the silk/fabric domed tweeters. That is the ONE and only area where I prefer the crispness of the 2000 as opposed to the smoother (more musical) RDOs! As always.....everyone's mileage will vary, along with their perceptions of sound.;)
