Sorry, yes, I meant endearing...much like I think you meant FIRST impressions.
And I compared the EMPs with Polk M70s, Infinity primus p363 and the pioneer Andrew Jones towers...all speaker exactly in the price range of these (under 500 dollars per pair). To compare the EMP smaller towers to speakers at or over 1000 per pair, well, that is like having a welterweight box a middleweight!
Okay, so we just differ in opinion about these speakers, no problem and you likely have a lot more experience than I do. While I get that these are not high end speakers...i just feel that when people throw out the "entry level" description, they are "labeling" your purchase as cheap. i prefer to look at it as I got a good deal without spending a lot of money...
And in no way would I describe these speakers as muddy. Very clear and detailed...perhaps lacking some at the lower end, but not muddy.
