Much more dynamic and forward with way better dispersion (but not harsh at all) than the SC2. I'm using a Denon receiver to power them and they sound great.
I'm using a Yamaha RX-S600 receiver MSRP: $649.95 Slim and compact 5.1-channel network AV receiver, with high-quality audio and convenient functions including AirPlay,AV Controller app and MHL support.
"Much more dynamic and forward with way better dispersion" Agreed the TWOC does sound better to my ears it also sounds too bright and high pitched
Ok. I’m not familiar with that particular receiver but I have had Yamaha receivers before and from recollection, I do remember it being a bit brighter than the next receiver I brought, which was a Denon. Maybe it was the Audyssey xt32 in that receiver that tamed the brightness in my speakers to the room that it is in. Have you done any room calibration with the Yamaha or have absorbing elements in the room that could possibly tame the harshness, ie: carpets, drapes, furniture, sound absorbing panels, etc.?
