Philharmonicaudio has a very solid reputation, albeit a small company. One of the few speaker companies whose products are destined to become classics after the Company is gone. That means they have a following. Just like Ascend Acoustics. IMO.
The company is basically just Dennis Murphy. He sells his speakers for basically no mark up. I hope that he is okay. He designs some of the crossovers for Salk Sound and Salk builds some of his cabinets. He is a very generous person.
One of my listening buddies has Philharmonic 3' s, they are a totally amazing full sounding speaker. Room rattling lows to clean crisp highs and everything in between. Price for quality one of the best.
