I've owned these speakers for the last month or so and could give you some info about them. I'm not a seasoned audiophile, but been running Kef Q300's on a NAD 150 watt integrated with a high end dac, thick cables, sand filled stands, acoustic treatment on the walls, and proper positioning. I care about how my setup sounds, and yes, these speakers really do live up to the hype. The deep waveguide doesn't give it a horn sound like an older klipsch, but it does give them a certain energy others speakers don't seem to have. What they were trying for was for the tweeter to have the same dispersion and off-axis response as the woofer and they seem to have pulled it off very well. These things have a massive soundstage and they recommend pointing them straight forward, but I found the center image to be lacking for watching movies, so I gave them a very slight toe in and it brought everything together perfectly. The thing that surprised me most was how well they sound when I'm in another room and have them turned up. Not only do they fill an entire room with music, but they can fill the next room over as well.
These speakers do like a decent amount of power and can play very loud. The amount of sound that comes from these little speakers is quite impressive. The treble is very neutral and lets you shovel some current to the speakers and not cause fatigue, and the bass is nothing short of amazing. I'm currently in the process of sending back the new svs subwoofer I bought because the crossover only goes down to 50hz and these speakers hit well below that and I couldn't get them to blend properly. I literally had a moment when I thought I had the sub and speakers blended perfectly and the low bass sounding great when I reached back and saw the subwoofer wasn't even on. I've found the distance from a back wall is very important with these speakers having a 5x8" passive radiator on the back. I spent many hours of critical listening getting them the right distance from the wall and found 12" to be the perfect distance.
Word of caution to anyone buying these. The break-in period on these speakers is a very real thing. Easily 100 hour minimum before they truly came together, with a few hours at high volume with bass heavy music to get the woofer and passive radiator flexing. These speakers are 4 ohm, which I think is a good thing considering how they like a lot of power. I tried them on an 80 watt integrated amp and was not very impressed at higher volumes. I'd recommend giving them a minimum of 120 watts to be able to hear them for what they are and I'm already saving up for a PS Audio setup that'll give them 300 watts because my 150 watt NAD integrated taps out before the speakers do.
Anyways, just saw this thread and figured I'd throw my opinion out there for anyone interested. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and cannot thing of anything else for the money I would rather have.
