Of course, sound IS subjective. I do hope he finds them enjoyable, and that in a year or so down the road, doesn't start wondering what he is missing out on with the almost $1000 less, speakers.
The cabinet is prettier though, on the $1200 pair.
Yes I'm a tad slow on the update ........my fault sorry.
Yes Squirrel I made my decision.
I went with Ascend Acoustics sierra 2's. Apparently you got your feeling hurt I didn't' go with what you would have liked me to sorry about that. I'll try and do better a
year or two down the road when I try and figure out what I'm missing.
Maybe I'll learn my lesson and just ask you next time.
firstly I had a LOT of different suggestions and many different opinions from many people who took time out of there day to write down a few suggestions of what they thought would work best for me based my my criteria . After quite a few suggested bookshelves would be better for my size of room I stared looking at bookshelves instead of towers. Then I started looking at review's and what people were saying about different speakers that were suggested.
What I DID find is the Ascend Acoustics had Out****ingstanding reviews, professional and personal. And everyone loved them. Even people who chose other speakers over them for one reason or another All said they were with out question great speakers.
Of coarse there were lots of reviews and comments on many great speakers I researched including your beloved chane speakers. Which Im sure are outstanding speakers infact most reviews I read on them said just that they were outstanding especially for the price.
research I didn't feel that the chane speakers were going to be able to compete with the sierra's and the RAAL tweeter for my type of music.
In the end I made the best decision for me based on the information I had found and that was the AA sierra 2's. Im very interested in hearing the RAAL ribbon tweeter and see if it's as great as everyone says it is.
However I do appreciate you taking your time out of your day to give me your opinion and advice. Thank you sir.
