The soundstage review is comparing to the original S8, not the v2. The original doesn't have the berylium tweeter or cobalt mid range. It is almost an entirely different speaker than even the v2. He talks about the S8's extension into the lower bass region but says it was loose, which is anything but the experience I have with the S8s. He also talks about the differences in the upper end, which should be considerable given the difference in materials used.
