Here are a few first impressions, FWIW :
- The 360's are much heavier and bulkier compared to the 250's. Hence lower W.A.F. for the 360's.
- They have a strong family resemblance. Actually they look the same, the 360's just look like 250's on steroids. The finish is exactly the same, the five-way binding posts are the same too.
- Sound: I haven't had the time to do a lot of comparative listening, but one thing is obvious, the 360's are louder/slightly more efficient than the 250's across the board, over the entire spectrum. I was wondering about the midrange too, but actually the two-way 250's and the three-way 360's sound almost the same to me, same tonality. I know that's rather vague, I expect to be able to pinpoint more differences between the 360's and 250's by listening to more recordings from different sources and at different volume levels.
Short version: they sound the same, but the 360's are louder. For a smaller room, the 250's are fine, for a bigger room, the choice would be the 360's.
My next buy will be the center speaker, obviously the Primus C25 is the one I have in mind.
