I just got back from Axpona and was pleasantly surprised (for my ears) that these speakers outperform most. Many speakers sound great but have a hardness in the upper mids that really grates over time. These have none of that yet still present a clear window to the music.
Beautiful Vienna Baby Beethoven Grand. Maple finish. Musical, even handed,never hard sounding. Outstanding value. Many reviews online for this superb speaker. BB size dent on one corner ( my fault ) and a blemish opposite side by tweeter ( not very noticeable, I owned them for a year before I saw it. Other than that "perfect". Great for all music genres.
