Better than any speaker costing up to 25,000 dollars that I have heard at reproducing the types of music described in the title. The realism on the aforementioned instruments is uncanny. I own four of them. Im building a system that will include them plus electrostatics, plasma tweeters, DSP correction, Qol enhancement and other high end types of speakers. Indispensable for this type of music. Hi end audio magazines shame on you for not giving these speakers the attention they deserve, you are doing a diservice to your customers.
Now two years of listening. Detailed, airy, musical, engaging, happy. You never see these on the used market. Today I listened to them with a five watt vintage amp. Miles Davis, Vivaldi, both sounded totally present. I also listen to a lot of 60s pop, soul, rock. These speakers always make me glad. No single sweet spot, they sound great all through our house.
After one year of listening I am still amazed at the sound stage and clarity of these speakers. Any time I've upgraded electronics or cabling the speakers have come through with even better sound.
These speakers sound full and alive. Go to their web site and use their links to read the professional reviews, they are all true. Plus the cabinet workmanship is superb. I think these will be my main speakers for years to come.
Got these as an barely used item in amazon. I connected them to an Aura Note CD Completer that I got in the used market, and I am enjoying these greatly. My wife, who is not an audiophile, loves the sound and looks. You feel that the performers are present with you in the room. Great coherence in the sound, and this makes you get all your favorite records and go into great discovery adventures. The high frequencies are not overtly emphasized, and this creates a very natural, non-fatiguing sound that invites you to relax and really focus in the music at hand. Fantastic for classical music, jazz combos.The bass is not earth-shatering, but it is well integrated into the music. Voices and details sound superb. I highly recommend these as a true audiophile gem! These are opening up very nicely in every listening session. Therefore, these speakers benefit from several days of break-in, even if they have been used before.
