The Meadowlark is a much better choice. More natural, coherent and smoother. The Josephs will give a lot of detail, but not nearly the long term enjoyment.

I have the Hot Rod Herons and they are a very impressive speakers. Build quaility is excellent and the time coherent design (trans line 1st order) exhibits excellent tonality, frequency extention, and waveform accuracy. At the price point a worthwhile investment IMHO. There are even more impressive speakers available as you know, like my newly purchased Duo's, but for the money a "sound" investment.
I bought the new Herons this week. I am very happy. They are the first speaker I can see living with for a long time. They are so smooth, and the base is great. I have them in a small to medium room, and am able to tune them so the the base is just right. I realized this week that I never knew what base was supposed to sound like. If you want ant info, you can email and I would be happy to talk.
