THE05: StTropez 1509 Audio Machina The fit and finish of these speakers is second to none. They excell in the midrange and are crisp in the upper end. I made several visits to this room and the speakers got better sounding as the show went on. I felt the need for some reinforcement below 200hz but that is usually the case with any monitor type speaker.
No low bass reinforcement needed in my room. At least not with the 225 wpc mono tube amps I just got. Subs would be overkill at this point. These speakers are very revealing of amplification; don't blame the speakers for what the amp can not provide.
