Sashav, you are home with the IB-2 and even more with the MB-2. But, the MB-2 throw huge bass that stomps over the most speakers. The MB-2 require huge room but sound is extremely fast, explicit detail that a great transmission line design give. The MB and IB are different in bass. Most resonable sized flats can't level with MB-2. I had IB-2 a Krell FPB 600c and the Teac P-70 and D-70 and it was awesome. The MB-2 was giving too much bass. The only gripe with Teac duo and the older FPB (c series) is that in the high frequency. The CX krell amps suits better with Esoteric or Teac, it is more organic. Or, you need to use a more soft sounding dcp than Esoteric/Teac. The IB-2 will not let you down, if paired up well. I've heard so many expensive speakers and systems. The IB-2 and MB-2 are really really great speakers. Just remember, the MB-2 will use a big amp, it will play louder and throw bass more than you might realize. If you got the room, go for it. I would buy the studio finish (black vinyl). The wood finish is not so good. It easily cracks and that is why i should opt for the vinyl trimming.
