I'm working on it. I do have them out setup and have done some "down and dirty" listening. So far my impression.......

They are very nice. Look good too. I went with the matte finish. If I was not going to put them in a theater I would have gotten one of the other "prettier" finishes.

Well there are several reasons. One was purely by Ascend's reputation with their previous offerings. I have been lurking in the owners forums and on the Ascend forum on their site. I had originally planned on going with the 340's, but my speaker budget opened up quite a bit so I went with their latest offering the Towers. I knew that being able to listen to the speakers was a no go, they are too new and Ascend is an ID company. I took a chance there but not without weighing my options. I considered Aperion and Klipsch as well. Those three (Ascend, Aperion, and Klipsch) were my top three picks. I have heard Klipsch before and I also have the Quintets so I am familiar with the Klipsch sound. The Quintets can get "harsh" when at high listening levels, the Sierra Towers so far have none of that "harsh" "feel" to them. If you are "on the fence" regarding several speakers then the best thing you can do is read and research the speakers you are interested in, better yet if you can find someone close that would be willing to let you listen to them.

Yup, they are brand new to Ascend. Not too many "out there" yet, I guess you could call me an early adopter with regard to these speakers. I felt very comfortable in going with Ascend, and now I'm not looking back!

I'll give you a hint. It starts with "A".
