Epos 16i: Are they as good as reviews claim??

I am considering a pair of Epos 16i speakers. Unfortunately, I won't be able to hear them and basing my decision on the Stereophile review. (not protocol for high enders) Nevertheless, I would appreciate members's comments who have heard this speaker or own it. I am concerned about its stated specification of bass performance which is rated at 48kz. My current speakers claim 38kz and sound good on the low end.
we should all take what a reviewer tells us about any piece of audio with a grain of very fine salt. Theirs and the mags survival depends on advertising dollars.
