Like I said before, I am really not a fully experienced audiophile. In fact my hearing is about 10% damaged due to childhood recklessness. But they do sound very good to me and my wife who has perfect hearing thinks they sound better than anything she has heard. I wish I could impress you all with tech talk and flattering words about them but it would be pretential. Talk snowmobiles, ( my other hobbie), and I'll give you all the top talk.
Here is the best way I can put it. I'm sure if you are used to regular speakers ie- polk, boston, klipsch etc that you will find these to be fabulous and probably the best you've heard. If you are used to Magnepans, Dynaudio, Wilsons etc then I would assume you would still think they sound great, how great I don't know.
As far as imaging, yes they are great IMO. There were many times we felt like the musicians were right in the room with us, (Andreas-Cosmopoly -the end of track 17, that is one cool track) and I'm sure this rooms acoustics are not even that good. As far as the 2.1's being better... I think it was more what we wanted our mood to be at the time. Like I said they were so delicate and pure sounding. I wonder if we thought that because they were missing the big strong bass and not really because they sounded any better. One thing I know for sure. They are flat out beautiful in their appearance and I've never seen a speaker that looks this good for this price.
I hope I am not rambling on and I apologize for not being more of an expert.
There is a lot of talk about these speakers but not by many who actually have them so I thought I would share my experience anyway.
