I listened to the 3.0s at Axpona in March. It was stereo, not multichannel. I thought they sounded great. I found my foot constantly tapping along with the music. I initially thought they were being run with a sub, but it was just the towers. Very tight bass. Good midrange. Highs were smooth but not as detailed as say a beryllium tweeter. I expected a higher price tag after listening to them. Definitely worth an audition.
