I audition many speakers yesterdays (JMLab Profile 918, Epos, DynaAudio Focus &Audience 72, PolkAudio LSi15, ATC, Thiel C2.3, Montor Audio GS20/GS60). Some speakers cost much than than Veritas 2.3i. The only Ampl used is Exposure 3010 (which is my 2nd Ampl, I use Martanz PM15 on V2.3i still like it) I believe strongly to test a speaker you got to bring your own ampl and bring your own favourite MusicCD. DynaAudio has great musical very good mid and tight bass, but the high is not as clear as Energy, must have something to do with their tweeter that uses soft material (like Jamo). I always notice those soft tweeter the "gong" and "bell" of the NewAge Music always fade off very quickly (some are even worst, cannot even hear it, the ATC simply did not have any of the High note at all but cost so much). Thiel is really flat I dont hear anything I like at all with regard to NewAge Music. Monitor Audio is good and very musical clear on high and mid but no bass.
V2.4i: Surprising the V2.4i bass seem to get all mixed up, the room is not big about 200sqft rectangular with another two speaker behind it,it is only a 2-3 feet away from the wall. The bass also disapper I simply dont hear what I am getting out of my V2.3i in anyway the sound is not impressive (also noted the new shop I audit the v2.4i is different from the shop that I have audit the V2.3i, the V2.3i have more elaborate Audio room setup, the V2.4i room is more than a Electronic Shop setup, to make it worst concrete wall on 3 sides of the spearker (rear and side). The sound really bad and I am very very surprise!! V2.4i sound worst than my V2.3i, must have something very much to do with the room. Epos is OK but so and so.
I audition the Polk Audio LSi15 it is actually very nice and have all three (high, mid and low perhaps musically not as rich sound as DynaAudio but close enough). Very well price, I am surprise why people has low opinion of Polk Audio and put off the brand (Myself too prior to hearing it). Probably due to its cheap car speaker??
Anyway I live in apartment, I do not have big room to accomodate V2.4i acoustic setup. I can only have 1-2ft from backwall only. RIght now I put off my purchase for a cooling off period, I considering strongly PolkAudio LSI15 since I alreay own a V2.3i
