    Has anyone listened to both the older Snells (B,C,D,E ect)

    as well as the newer lines that were introduced after they were purchased by Boston? Is the sonic characteristic close enough to mix the old with the new or are they drastically different? Does the new line sound more like Bostons's than the older Snells?

    Thanks

    Tom

    The new lines are very much Snells and not Bostons (yet). Word is they might begin mixing the lines. However, the tweeter in the new series X and .5 is Boston's black anodized dome. The older Snells used soft domes (I believe) and certainly not Boston drivers. I belived they used Vifa drivers. I think it best to test one out to really find out.
