Just came across this thread. I read it all. I am sorry I missed all the excitement. I told Josh I purchased a few of these a few weeks back. I actually only wanted to find a cheap replacement for my more than tired drivers in my Definitive Technologies PF1800s. I was not really interested in all the performance issues, I was just looking for something that looked pretty stout and could bolt right in with little added work. I saw the first post on HT shack about these drivers and I was excited. The video of the other drivers in action was more than enough for me to pull the trigger. Well, now it seems that the numbers are in and I might have actually gotten more than I expected. The tests that Josh made seem to have quieted most of the savage beasts. Hey, I bought the 5400's when they were just a picture on a website, and I seem to have done the same thing again. I could go on and on about the Lms's, but the numbers are correct and they do exactly what everyone says. With that said, I am going to trust the numbers that Josh put forth and be happy with my purchase. Also, I paid over $4000.00 for those def techs in about 1995. Thats over $6000.00 in today's money not counting the interest or compounding I lost due to the expense of the original $4000.00. For me, it is no- brainer. For $393.00, I am going to have a vastly improved system-just because it will work again, and maybe get a little better performance because of the 17 years of improved tech that the SI brings to the table. I can't lose here, and I know I and anyone who buys these will be happy campers.
Good luck to all,
