Escalante Fremont

What is their general sonic character?I have heard more conflicting reviews/remarks than any other speaker I have interest in.
they are great speakers!!! The only review that wasn't just awesome was stereophile. Everyone else gave rave reviews and even bought the review pair. I owned them for 3 years and the only reason I still don't have them is I moved to a house with a smaller room. They are extemely fast, musical and detailed. They have incredible, fast accurate bass, with great midrange and extended, non fatiguing highs. They maintain a flat frequency response (8 ohlms, I think) and can pair with solid state or low powered sets since their 93 db efficient. I suggest you give them a listen. I don't think you can find a better pair of speakers than that for under 30k.

Whoa Sparky, hang on a minute.

First, define better. It's unquestionably different for every listener.

Second, "under $30K" covers a lot of ground. There are dozens of very fine speakers within that price range.

Third, the fact that most reviewers bought them only means they identified a good opportunity to audition and then sell the speaker for a nice profit, based on a $15K cost. Reviewers seldom keep components for an appreciable length of time.

Let's not get carried away here.
I have an hones opinion based on owning and hearing a many pairs of speakers costing as much as or more than the Freemonts. If you don't like my opinion, that fine, but it is my opinion. You always seem to post negative comments here on the forums. Your business must really suck and you have nothing better to do. I suggested for the poster to give them a listen and let him decide for himself. Instead of being an ass why don't you post something useful or helpful once in a while!!!
Hit a nerve did I Sparky?

I've owned more speakers than you've heard.

Your a tough guy Audiofeil. Judging by the Speaker lines you carry, I will take that as a compliment. Maybe you should get your hearing checked.

That pretty much seems to be your total reason for existence on these pages.
