    Has anyone listened to the M&K Xenon line? I've seen the Secret's review & they seemed impressed. These speakers are small... could they be the next pro-WAF alternative to Bose? Just wondering if anyone's listened to them...

    I heard them in a store not too long ago and they do sound good. Actually sounded better for music than the higher end M&K they had in the store. Also sounded very nice on movies.

    All volumes were far from reference though and the room was not particularly well setup (not a real listening room, they were in the lobby basically).

    Definitely had high WAF. I don't know the price but if I had real space concerns I would check them out more seriously.

    The sealed sub doesn't go below 50Hz according to Sound & Vision magazine. This worries me because I can build a subwoofer about the same size that can hit 20Hz. Also, didn't the Acoustimass module roll off at about 50-60 Hz?
