AND sounded like they measured: super colored. For a while I had the monitor version to check out and I literally thought they were broken they sounded so "off."
Interesting comment above. I did not own the monitors but I never thought the Khorus or the Ravens sounded broken at all.
That being said, your blanket question asking which one we would buy depends on your system. The Talons IMO are much more dynamic, had better clarity, and had the best bass when set-up correctly that I heard in my system. The 10Ts were more "musical" had a better mid-range but did not have the deep bass and definition of the Talons. With SRV on Riviera Paradise, the Talons were the best speaker I ever head play that song.
The 10Ts also had issues with the top cracking but I am not sure if that had an impact on the sound.
You need to select a speaker for your system and the type of music you prefer not what any of us think.
