[QUOTE=swartzy.baby;56729450]Wife took the kiddo out for the day, so I've had some time to blast music towards my face at levels I won't make a habit of listening at. I do have a few direct comparison notes to the B1. As the specs would suggest, the T2 are more efficient. I've got my receiver volume at around 60, and it's borderline uncomfortably loud. With the B1, I had it up closer to 67 (the volume on my power source, the Boston AVR7120, is set at "0" (I think the range is something like -80 -> +20)). Playing the same set of music, the T2 retains everything I was impressed with on the B1; namely; mids and highs. That tweeter is crazy detailed, and I *love* it. Boston's old VR tweeters used to be my favorite, everything else was "meh, just a tweeter". I *thought* that I liked the tweeter in the B&W 685s2 that I tried out. The Airmotiv tweeter is glorious.
What the T2 brings to the table, then, is power and composure. At volume 60 for me, they are just below the point of discomfort in terms of volume, and they show no signs of distress. The "mess" that I heard at higher volume with the B1 and complex tracks is completely gone. I haven't noticed any added "warmth" with the larger woofers, which is good news as far as I'm concerned. Just much, much better handling of complexity and loudness.
In all honesty, the T1 probably would have met all my needs. I can't imagine I pushed these things beyond 25% of their potential this morning, and I can't imagine I'll ever want to go any louder. Having said that, there's no way I'm returning these now that I have them. Like opting for the big burly V8 over the V6, having the potential extra power capability is comforting. The B1 would, in comparison, be a very nice turbo 4.
For those interested, I am using the Audyssey "Flat" EQ after calibration and have them crossed over at 60hz. I have not bothered comparing with Audyssey "on" vs "off".[/QUOTE
Good to hear....you should get a big soundstage and imaging is fab...off axis is awesome something I've overlooked but its great.
