I couldn't be more enthusiastic or happier with my Mod2 setup. Having moved to NYC meant giving up the nice 14 foot ceilings and open space of our place in Bonita Springs FL.
But once having understood that my paradigms just weren't going to cut it inour apt in the city, I started to looking for something that would.
The WAF of course played a huge role, she wanted the cute little Bose speakers she saw at the mall, uh yeah like that was going to happen. After about 3 months of non stop research, hearing everything I could find in stores, reading all types of reviews these littles Orbs came into our lives.
30 day trial yep, hard to imagine that I would ever buy something unseen, but the reviews were there, the forums all spoke of their price to performance. I pulled the trigger. Mod2 setup with 4 HOSS stands, Denon 2807 amp, PS3 and a Panasonic Th-58PX600U.
The Sub is amazing for my setup, after playing with it for about two days, I finally got it dialed in right for my application. You can't tell where the bass is coming from, even though it is in plain sight. The imaging and soundstage that these little polished aluminum orbs produce has to heard to be believed. I was floored after they broke in (about 3 weeks) when my music started sounding spectacular. Dark Side of the Moon felt there, present. the nuances and mellifluous undertones made their way to me in a manner that my Paradigms never did. Of course, now I have a tiny living room and am a captive audience, but I truly believe that these speakers hold their own against much higher priced competition.
Last week we had a friend over for drinks and then all sat down to watch a movie. She stated, wow your TV sounds great. What kind of TV is that, the sound is incredible, even sounds like you have surround! (we were watching the Matrix Revolutions). I laughed and pointed to the speakers which in the dim lighting did not stand out other than in the way they sounded. Her response was.... All of that is coming out of those little speakers? well of course that screwed it up for the rest of the night. We eventually started to show off the capabilities and after about half an hour my laptop was out and she was ordering her own Mod2's !
Enthusiasm? Try to take these away from me. For me at this time these speakers are perfect!
