I believe it now falls under the “Under 3k” category now. Even factoring out Salk cabinets, these are a $2200 speaker, no? This could be a game changer really. They now have to play with a whole lot more players in the under 3k section. This also plays to the tune that they lost their mind blowing value which was indeed a huge selling point to many, but *not* the only selling point, keep in mind....
I've said it before: I will say it again.
At $2500 a pair, the Monitor Audio Silver 500 is not as good, and this is what I would have bought just short of auditioning at Ascend. (And by most reviews I read comparing the two, it could be surmised that Wharfedale Diamond series is not equal to the BMRs as they consistenly rated just below the MA Silvers... perhaps at the top of the Reva Line? Jade Line?"
Martin Logan Motion 60XT, almost $3000 a pair? No (I preferred MA Silver to these).
B&W 600 series. No. (Based on what I've heard many others owners say about the 700 Series: also No.)
KEF Q950, $1800 per pair. No. KEF R900 (currently $3000 per pair), maybe, but not for me. KEF R11, $5000 per pair: still, no... didn't sound as good as the R900 audition... different store, but overall, KEF triggered fatigue in my ears.)
What will deliver in Frequency Response, Accuracy, and Neutral SQ? What's the price cut off per pair: 3K, fully built, no kits???
