this is a very refined speaker. it is similar in sound to sonus and chario. if you have a room thats not too incredibly big, its a speaker that is very balanced.

I'll be using the Quintas with 50w tube amps (AES Sixpacs) in a fairly large space augmented with a pair of subwoofers. I wouldn't have considered the Quintas for this environment without the subs as I don't think they would be able to fill the space well at higher SPL's without them. Hopefully this won't be an issue with the subs.
I've only had the Quintas a few days now, and so far really like what I'm hearing. One of my Sixpac amps started malfunctioning, so I connected my Wright Mono 10 amps which are 10W 2A3 based tube amps and I was very pleasantly surprised! I didn't think they would have enough power to drive the Quintas, but they seem to (I am using an external crossover set at 60Hz, where the bottom end is filled by a pair of Entec subs, so the Mono 10 amps driving the Quintas are not being forced to produce low bass). I really like the non-harsh/metallic sounding tweeter and the slightly laid back character. They seem very non-fatiguing to me so far.
