Well, they finally arrived. I have but 1 word to say..WOW!!
I was pretty scared when I saw one of the boxes. It was beat to hell. I checked everything and they are absolutely flawless. Giving them a workout as mains right now since surrounds wouldn't be as good a "break in". Got Sammy Hagars latest, "Not 4 Sale" on and I am very impressed. What a deal for $200!!! Highs are nice and crisp but not harsh at all. Maybe even a bit crisper than the LS50's. Mids and bass are are also very impressive but I think the LS50's have the edge here. Got to be the extra driver (duh)
Overall, very, VERY impressed. Best $200 I ever spent. It's going to be hard to move these to surround duty but that's still the plan.
Hope all of you other guys who were lucky enough to snatch these up are as happy as I am.
