Immediate thoughts - I wish I could have bought right there and then.
Honestly, these speakers punch well above their weight in regards to their price point. I have no reservations in the ability of these new versions to tango with speakers parading in the $20-25K range. I have previously auditioned 802D's, BE-1037's and TC-70X's.
The bass reproduction, imaging and detail are absolutely superb. During the audition I listened to my compilation MFSL test disc and Philips compilation disc. Instruments and voices were very convincingly rendered, great separation and the front sound stage was enormous.
If you, like myself are in the market for new speakers you need to make sure you either get to ADL, MELB or SYD (very soon I believe - is this right Philip?) to audition them...
PS: My test disc included the likes of Cat Stevens, Lennon, Orbison, Bryan Adams, U2 and Guns "n Roses
