The 9H is the most interesting, unfortunately also the most expensive!

It is a clear step above the rest due to active sub with room eq. The rest don't measure up.

Also, be careful about their support. Make sure you have local support and equipment doesn't have to go to Canada and back for repairs.

Why do you say it like that Amir? Do you have experience with poor support?
They have a very large US dealer network.

I had an Anthem amp (MCA-50, ~40 lbs) that needed repair. I shipped it to Buffalo, they trucked it to Canada, trucked it back to Buffalo, and shipped it back to me. Took a few weeks,; repairs were $400 and shipping was $50. If you have to ship 100 lb speakers, it's cost a couple hundred bucks, and there's always the risk of damage.

Service was great but obv I was without the amp for a couple weeks.

Sadly we did. My company was a dealer for them for about a year or two. Had a to take back a lot of products that failed in the field that they could not even fix.

They sure look very impressive. Great WAF (wife acceptance factor) as well.
Do you have a WAF test reference? I think that most people who use this term are really guessing at it and are really using their own assessments. My wife hated the appearance of the Personas even though I let her choose the color for the pair I reviewed. Just an anecdote, of course.

It is impossible to have WAF reference test as after reaching app 45 wifes tend to become more and more grumpy.. :D
