Do you find the speaker veiled at all or having a "british sound" to it. I have read many reviews saying they are a little laid back which it sounds like you dont find
Your description sounds just what I like
Just as others have said here, I wouldn't worry about it being too laid back. They are really detailed, but you need to listen for yourself. If you love the sound of Klipsch, these probably will sound a little laid back. Also, be careful when you read the reviews (I know that I read everyone that I can get my hands on). Here is an example. Stereophile has a review of the S2 which is for the most part very positive. There is one line that says "Over the Monitor Audios I kept going for a drier mix, with more of the cardioid feed apparent, than I did with the Dynaudio Confidence C4s I reviewed back in March. What sounded right on the S2s lacked enough envelopment over the more neutrally balanced Dynaudios " I am not sure what a cardoid feed even is, nor do I care to
, and from that statement I am not sure which speaker has the advantage, but here is the point. The Confidence C4's are $16,000 a pair towers
. C'mon now, why even make that comparison.
Bottom line, go listen. I think everyone is looking for not too bright, and not too laid back. What speaker delivers that to your ears should be the one you go with. Besides, auditioning is fun. In some ways I am sad the search is over. Oh well, maybe it is on to a subwoofer upgrade.
