the ohm is generally regarded, even in more traditional audiophile circles as a great allrounder,though its more of a music lover's speaker. the shahinian speakers are a bit more polarizing, when it comes to opinions. if you are on 'somewhat' of a budget, and your tastes in music are all over the place, i can't imagine the ohm not being a solid choice. lots of classical music enthusiasts however flip over shahinian..more money too, though...both are a departure from the norm, and once you go there, you rarely come back, unless you enjoyed the merry-go-round in the first place. this is pretty much true for the other omni or reflective designs as well....like most reflective or omni designs, from the mbl(a white collar omni),to the controversial but industructable bose 901, they do love lots of clean power.....a ps, the new line of mirage speakers is a valid allrounder as well....have fun, its a different world......knowing what you already listen to, and what you feel they lack is helpful too....you may already be there, and just need to tweek a bit.
