With a 4k budget you should dry Eggleston Isabella with stands and a Rel Strata sub. Absolutely esquisite.

hello I don't know what superfly was listening to it must have either been under the tweeteroff to the side or some other issue for I have heard these and several others and we thought is was excellent ,and super tunefull bass.The mbl 311 are pretty nice , but they are certainly not not more resolved and musical as the Callistos. They too may not have been broken in properly if under 200 hrs ,that is minimum.
When I heard the callisto's they were in a equilateral trianlge with good position. The only thing I can think of that was causing the offending high frequency was room response. The room was quite small and perhaps there was some reflection from the back wall. Other than the slight smearing/overly forward mid high sound, they were great. I would like to hear thewm with different gear and in a better room. I am also trying to hear some Fontains if I can.... a bit of a budget stretch but maybe worth it? I heard an eggleston that was a model or 2 better and they were very nice. I am now audtioning between the 4jr and gallo ref III, the GMA callisto's and the fontaines. I hope I can narrow it down a bit in the comming weeks.
