I have a pair - many people do not realize that there are 2 versions w. different drivers, 1 in vinyl for cheap U.S. distribution on ubid.com, et. al.and 1 in real wood veneer (MK II) for general distribution (Amazon used to carry these). Made in China (but dont let that scare you off).
The vinyl version is crap as the woofer does not assilmilate well with midrange or tweeter. On the other hand, the MK II version may be the best deal in home audio. It is definately a "colored" speaker in that it infuses a warmth to most recordings (which also makes it very forgiving with less than steller recordings). Very easy to drive, good for HT applications (shielded), nice "high" soundstage and fairly handsome to boot. Compares favorably to my Opera Super Pavarottis ($1800 USD) and Martin Logan Arius ($2000 USD). Buy them if you can find them. Beware con artists selling inferior MKI version. Don't listen to my fellow audiophile snobs, unless you get the upgrade bug, possibly the last pair of speakers you will ever want or need.
