"What finish by the way?"
I had settled on the satin black prior to contacting Ascend, but apparently that is not a standard option with this run of Towers. Choices were natural, the matte black, satin cherry, and satin espresso which is what I opted for.
I live in an old country farmhouse in the middle of corn country, there seems to be an inordinate amount of dust around here at times, making the textured surface of the matte finish a bad idea in my circumstance.
I would like to mention that I agonized for quite some time over the idea of going with a high efficiency "pro" style of solution, such as the eD cinema 12s, or JTRs. Due to the fact that I love to listen to high resolution, multichannel music which accounts for the majority of the system's use, I decided articulate, detailed, accurate music reproduction trumped the huge dynamic headroom of the other type of solution.
If I didn't have to work 7 days a week, I know it would have been a good idea to audition a high sensitivity/power setup. It's not a practical option in my case.
