I am auditioning them now with a Mac mc 402 and c 2200 preamp. I hate them. They sound like home theatre speakers, not for 2 channel purist audio. Too much bang, boom, sizzle. The new panel is more revealing on the high end which will make your bad recordings sound worse. No bass adjustments. I like their old designs better. I think the Ascent I sounded better. I think the "microperf" panel is just marketing BS. I had the ascent I for an extended audition and it sounded just as big with much tighter bass. DO NOT buy this speaker without a careful home audition. Did You hear me?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
