Just heard these speakers and was quite impressed. Their definately not forward in the upperange but have a very full sound to midrange vocals. I really enjoyed the base response. I also auditioned the Klipsch RF-7 and found the tannoy to be a much better Rock speaker in terms of it doesn't over emphasize the high frequency cymbals and electric guitar. Does anyone have any ideas of a comparibly priced speaker to check out? Anyone have any thoughts on this speaker in general? Your help is much appreciated.
