Like the Wharfedale Linton 85, they seem to couple nice with my room or something, they had a wide and seat independent stereo illusion for me.Just had a pair delivered at $399 CAD. Right out of the box I find it very listenable and natural sounding, moreso than other similar sized and priced speakers I'm auditioning for a second system, e.g. various Polks and Elacs. The tweeter/treble is much smoother than the others for example. The tests I run are, does a cello sound like a cello, similarly, for a piano. Yes to the former, somewhat for the latter. I've listened to it for a couple of hours and I'm not yet tempted to experiment with EQ, placement, etc. again unlike the other speakers I've tried.
Sadly, i can't really point to the measurement and say this or that is the reason. I'm sure it's in the measurement, but i can't see it.
Except their good bass response for their size, that is obvious.
Lent them to a friend who found them pleasant, but unremarkable.
However, he also loves the KEF R3, which i find just "ok".
It's all a mystery sometimes.
Luckily they have dropped from 430€ to 300€ here now, which brought them from meh to good value.
