These speakers are a massive upgrade from the Onkyo THX-S9100 set I had. So far, I enjoy the sound that the set produces _after_ I run Audyssey MultiEQ XT (8 readings) on my Marantz 6006.
Before the equalization, all the speakers seemed to be missing clarity and definition up high. I thought the horn driver would be 'bright' out of the box, but it was quite muted up high. After equalization, there was definition and fidelity in the highs. Audyssey took some of the warmth away from the mid section, but also lifted up the entire top end.
There also seemed to be a void in mid-bass punch. Music that I knew had 'punchy' bass lines seemed to be lacking the punch altogether which equalization did not seem to help. I'm still playing with this one. Audyssey EQ'd the 50-150Hz range down a bit, but this didn't seem to be the cause. The speakers just don't move enough air, but the PL-200 seems to be unable to fill in that void either. Hopefully breaking in the speakers will bring about a little more punch.
Here's what Audyssey applied to my speakers to bring them to 'flat' response:
