I had a pair of Blue Herons until I lost my job earlier this year and was forced to sell them. They were the best high-end speaker I'd owned. As with any speaker, how they sound depends upon the upstream gear and the room. Given that caveat, I loved them. The gas-piezo tweeter is world-class. However to get good bass (which they *will* do) be prepared to put some watts to them. I play rock, and found that a 150 watt Rowland Model 10 would not get the woofers going to my liking. A friend brought over a Sunfire Signature amp that produced some of the best bass I've heard from any speaker. The Blue Herons apparently are built to be bi-amped - the mid and tweet have their own binding posts that say "8 ohm" and the woofer's binding posts say "4 ohm". There are no links for single wiring, so draw your own conclusions. With appropriate amplification, probably solid state (bet a BAT VK-6200 kicks ass) they are fantastic.
