These floorstanders have all the virtues of great speakers: tonality, timbre, sound stage, imaging and also look like they should be in a museum. Please read about them: http://www.stereotimes.com/speak111901.shtml
I have had numerous great speakers, and these certainly are in that elite category. They make you want to listen to music, and do well with all types with finesse. Work equally well with tubes, hybrid, and solid state. Only, selling because of a move. Must sell to local buyers-no cartons.. A steal at this price!
