Yes, one of my personal favorites for bang for your speakers. I found such a good deal on these I almost did a blind buy over my paradigms, but opted not to. a month later I got to spend some time with them. They are a very impressive speaker Not harsh at all, over all I would call them a "rich" sounding speaker not warm not bright but rich, with nice detail/clarity in the highs. Mid range punch is nice and smooth. The iQ Series is selling for super super cheap right now this would be a $1,000 well spent IMO. http://www.accessories4less.com/make...Package/1.html. In my price range my favorites thus fare are Paradigm, PSB, and KEF, I know that L2W has got some love KEF too. Too bad you don't have a dealer closer to you cause right now they are a steal of a deal for a very high quality speaker.
