I'm afraid it's been way to long since I've heard/had the V1's to accurately suggest what the aural differences may be. I can tell you that the midrange on the new speakers is really great, and that the highs and lows seem to be very extended.
Build-wise, I've heard folks complain about the fact that the v3's aren't available in veneer and have subsequently lost some weight. But I have to tell you that the new drivers look to be among the best I've ever seen in this price range. The tradeoff seems fair.
Hi! I owned V.2 and now have 100 V.3 along with 20 V.3 and CC 470 V.3. I feel that V.3 is an improvement over V.2- less bloated and better defined bass, better midrange. The overall sound is more coherent and less overpowered by bass. I'm still dealing with my room acoustical problems (some bass peaks, etc.), so my impressions are probably not entirely accurate. I can only attest to the difference b/w V.2 and V.3. Regarding the build quality, I don't think it suffered a bit. The cabinets are just physically smaller, hence the the "weight loss".
