I know tuning preferences are largely subjective, but it’s hard to know from the review if the speaker has less bass in addition to having more treble (extension vs tuning)
I am really bummed as I JUST bought a pair of bookshelf speakers and would’ve much preferred getting ELACs that are forgiving of positioning instead. As long as these have decent bass response, I’m tempted to switch.
Yeah, brighter than the old Debut doesn't mean bright overall. I have the Uni-Fis and I wouldn't call them bright in the least. They have nice treble detail, but they're not at all fatiguing. I'd call them open, which is a good thing IMO, and if the new Debuts are more open than the old ones that should bode well for them.
