I just got the Analysis Plus Oval 12 and could not be happier. I had PS Audio Statements and simply got tired of wrestling with them. I suggest getting the bi wire version of the 12s as with Analysis Plus bi wire means doubble the wire...two complete seperate cables joined at each end. The sound is wonderful! VERY easy to work with and the bananas are of nice quality. The science behind them appears to be solid as well, hope this helps.
