I purchased a set of Europas in January and am very happy with them. They are everything that others have described in reviews. I also auditioned a set of DeCapo I last summer when I was looking to replace a set of Athena AS-F2. At the same time I tried out a set of Cardas Neutral Reference speaker cables. I ended up only buying the Cardas cables as I did not feel that the DeCapos were that much of an improvement over the Athena's. As I remember the DeCapos were very dynamic but not as detailed as the Europas. I also listen to rock, jazz and blues.
