I agree -- at the blind meet the eD's had the most intelligible dialogue to me over the JTR, CHT, and DR250s --- thus I personally liked them a lot of music watching - one of my biggest complaints with my current Wharfedale speakers is that I sometimes have a hard time hearing what is said with lower dynamic levels. I'm hoping the eD's resolve that for me. They weren't my personal favorite speaker overall, they placed third behind the JTR and the CHT in my own blind evaluation scoresheet --- however -- carp is selling them to me at a good price, and I know the background of these speakers and have demoed them with enjoyable results in both carp's room and my own room. They'll hold me over until such a time that I decide to upgrade to a more amazing speaker like the JTR Noesis. The material I found harsh on the ED's was not voices, but things like the chain in the Lord of the Rings cave troll scene, or the hiss of cymbals in music, or the 'hiss' of poorly encoded MP3's. I was hoping an upgraded tweeter driver could be drop in -- but it sounds like if you have to change crossovers and I'm not sure I have the know how to do that yet. I'll look into it some and have some friends in KC who are learning more about it now too.
When you get ready to demo those DR250's and your theater room through a public invite meet I'd like to try to fly out to take part.
-- at any rate ---I like carp's eD cinema12's enough as is to have told carp long ago if he upgraded I'd like to buy his eD's ---- and that opportunity came along as he purchased the Noesis set. I was going to buy a set from another forum member, but they were about double the price including shipping (although they did have the upgraded tweeter ---but not having heard the upgraded model I have a hard time paying 2x's as much as what carp was selling his set for locally on a blind hope it would be 2x's as good).
Nezff -- are you selling your empty tower cabs? I'd possibly be interested in them for playing around with some of enrich's speaker and crossover designs.
