Got my LCR 2010 8s today. Had the 09 versions previously. It's been a while since I've listened to the 09s AND I had over $1000 of upgrades done to my EAD pre/pro too.......what I'm hearing is excellent but I'm sure some is due to the upgrades and some to the speakers. The biggest difference that strikes me compared to what I remember of the 09 8s is a much warmer and rounded sounding midrange....so the midrange character definitely seems more of a presence than the previous versions. I have a good bit of hum with no signal present....can here it from 3-4 feet away but it does not affect the sound. Just using a 2 channel system right now with an 8" Mirage powered sub, modded EAD 8800 pre/pro, Wyred4Sound ST-250, and Oppo 970HD.
Extremely pleased and can't wait to get the theater set up. Jeff installed some inserts for me like before so I slickly have these mounted on some M&K ST1 stands and tilt brackets.
