I know nothing.
I wanted warm palpable mids and figured a 3-way would do it better than a 2-way. The Toy Tower's have a dedicated midrange driver that covers the whole range bet 400 hz and 4khz, and a ring tweeter like their more expensive models, gotta be the one! WRONG
In my living room, with my gear (YMMV) I could not come to terms with the Toy's voicing for several days. Fine speakers, detailed, tuneful bass but me, I don't like them.
I asked a friend I trust to audition the Venere's 2.5, which he did and thought they'd be to my liking. The 2.5 arrived a few days ago, I temporarily connected them to a mid-fi AVR for break in without setting up, amp, cables or DAC. Turned it on and yes: with the worst possible set up they hit the right buttons. It only took me 20 minutes to decide I was keeping them although getting the bass right may prove tricky.
2.5 speakers, with cheaper tweeters in frivolously engineered Chinese cabinets sitting on glass bases?
