I've been shopping these fine Energy speakers for a while now and the new "i" series coming out saw some deals to be had for last years models. Today I received a pair of the Veritas 2.2 and matching stands in cherry. I am in awe of the beauty after assembling them. They are much better looking that I thought they'd be regardless of the fact I know they are expensive. Build quality is just spectacular. Now for the bad part. UPS handling destroyed one of them. The woofer and rod mount was torn away. They'll be repaired and in a couple of weeks, I'll finally get to hear these fine pieces sound off. I have already ordered the 2.0 center Veritas to complete the front side of my HT system. I'll spend the next few weeks or so breaking them in and then give them a true test against my old JBL L100 monsters that usually eats just about anything. I do expect a more refined laid back sound from the Veritas whereas the JBLs just reach out and slap you in the face. We'll see. Anybody else here using Veritas for 2 channel or HT?
