So on the basis of your assertion, if said speakers didn't work, failed to generate any sound, because they look drop dead gorgeous, all is well?
RMK raises a valid point. Speakers you don't see but sound amazing, speakers which do not take over one's room because of aesthetics or sheer size. Why the Bose Acoustimass lured many followers 20-25 years ago....tiny speakers with a sub that sounded very BIG. (never mind the frequency response voids)
Begs the inquiry, just why do you purchase speakers? because they simply look good.........or sound pleasing?
I vote for "sound pleasing" myself.
