I've owned the LSA-20s for about 6 months and like them a lot. (Used Totems for years.) But I've found the amp you pair these speakers with makes a huge difference. I switched out my B&K ST-2140 for a new LSA Voyager 350 GaN (which probably can make any speaker system sound better) and the result was terrific, esp in the higher frequencies. More mellow/smooth. Very clear detailing. Even so, it's difficult for me to imagine a better speaker for the money than the LSA-20s. The only advice I might add is to compare the "Signature" with the "Standard," which costs about $1k more for a different tweeter. (Beautiful looking cabinets.) To my ear not convinced the tweeter makes a big difference when the Signature is paired with a good power amp. I like this GaN but a tube amp would probably also work well to soften the treble register. In any case, this is another product from Walter's shop that does what he always claims: produce great music at great value.
