I finished my Audax HT Left and Right mains yesterday and they sound great. I do admit that I am a little biased but anyone who builds these will be pleased I think. My dog even noticed the sound quality difference... he kept trying to find where the voices were comming from. They will definitely benifit from the addition of a subwoofer, which I expected. overall they sound very balanced and detailed. There are better speakers for music, although I do think these sound very good. Bass is just not as strong as I would like, but I understand the aerogel drivers need time to break in and will develope stronger bass. Those are my initial impressions. I will share more details later after I have really had a chance to listen to them. UPDATE: my reciever has the speakers set to small, Changed that and now bass is quite acceptable, still needs a sub fot HT but sounds great on music.
