Rob and Nate,
you guys were right. These are even better for music than the 212's + subs. I'm on my second album since I first fired them up and I can tell it's going to be a late night.
Right now I'm playing them full range no subs and FLAT. Flat has never sounded so good. I must suck at integrating subs with mains, haha, but it's not for a lack of trying!!
I will play with eq tomorrow and I'm sure I'll run them a little hot but right now it's sounding incredible.
What I like better:
Imaging. Instruments/voices are even easier to pick out/seperate.
Soundstage - massive. Danley SH50 massive? Not sure... I'd have to have them in the same room again. If I had to bet I'd say the Danley's still have the edge here.
When I stand up and move around the room the sound is so consistent! Just what I loved about he SH50's!
I swear they have a little bit different sound in the highs. I know it makes not sense because it's the same compression driver, but it's a slightly different sound. So far I prefer it but I have only listened to 1 full album and part of another.
Ok.... just crossed them over to the subs. Hmmm something sounds wrong in comparison. Can't put my finger on it.... going back to no subs full range.... ahhh that's better.
Lot's of experimenting/measuring/etc. to do, this is going to be fun!
Here are some pictures from earlier today at the GTG:
