That would be neat to compare. I suspect that they would be subtlely different. Pretty minor stuff, compared to room and EQ.
Both are 3 way.
Both are extremely dynamic, with low distortion.
Cat8 is active.
Different off-axis response, particularly with the horn vs 8" coax & different crossover points to the woofers.
210 plays lower, which is only an issue if you don't use subs.
210 is floor standing, so that depends on practical issues.
210 may have an advantage with mid-bass, with the larger woofers.
I'd be happy with either, once I tailored them with EQ.
I guess I worried about subtleties with speaker voicing more before I started really using EQ.
Now I worry more about speaker capability & distortion.
