I've been enjoying the Sierra 2's for a few months. I can't recommend them enough. Also, the Ascend stands that fit the other bookshelf speakers make for a great fit and presentation of the speaker. I also ordered the Sierra 1 center to use for h/t use to save some money, but it did not match the 2's too well, so I ordered the 2 center channel. Unfortunately the 2 that arrived had blemishes and scratches and Ascend has been a class act on how they are dealing with it. The Sierra 2 center is a much better speakers than the 1 center.


PS. WARNING. If anyone is going to use a VTI center channel stand with these speakers, be very careful. I had rubber pads installed in four different spots on the VTI and even with that, last night I heard a loud thump which was the Sierra 2 sliding off the stand. Damaged the speaker in two spots on the rear and cracked my floor. What I had to do as a remedy was to drill a hole on the back of the top plate of the VTI and put a bracket to hold the speaker in place. I hope this is not going to be an issue with Ascend since the speaker was being returned anyway because it was blemished to begin with. Sometimes luck or lack there of gets the best of us.


I'll post a follow up next week, but so far, the sound is lovely.

Try using a putty like Blu-Tack on stands, holds well even at an angle....

Thanks, but the bracket I installed is more of a permanent fix.

Neekos, I wonder if you could relate your experience, when you got your Sierra 2 speakers, did the rubber isolation pads(for the speaker bottom) and the company logos stickers come with each speaker?

The rubber isolation pads did come with the speakers but no logos for any of the speaker grills. Only the Ascend tag on the back of the speakers

Okay, thanks. I'm not even sure now if a company logo for the grills is included at all.

My pair of Sierra Horizons w/ RAAL ribbon tweeters arrived a little over a week ago with isolation pads, test sheets and a copy of the invoice. No grill logos, warranty cards or owner's manuals were included.
