The 2105 Pro midranges replaced the LE5-9 mids
The boxes are mirror imaged (better soundstage)
And last but not least, Biased crossover networks.
The components for the XOs cost more than some people want to spend on a pair of speakers.
For pure stereo playback, I prefer the customs to the PT800s.
And the PT800s are better than any other speaker in the $3K range, imo.
And having auditioned the Gem2, I would not pay the difference.
I would want to go up to at least the Salon2 on an upgrade.
