I Just got these sonys today . I tested vs the Logans and the $100 Pioneers - wich are excelent for the price.
I placed the K30ed on my bed and started testing
It sounded very good actually in comparison , crisp highs stronger vocals than the logans
but ofcourse when you turn up the Logan ESL they sound like Big speakers with Big Power and super detailed sounds
- I was really impressed by the sony's though really impressed
So now I place the K90ED and compare it to my $100 pioneer and the Pioneer actually sounds 5x better , its like a day and night difference.
I didnt understand bc I had really liked the K30Ed against the logan I just figued that the k30ed woudl sound the same or worst the the k90 -Turns out that the K30ed sounds way better than the K90
I belive that the crossovers on the K90Ed makes it sound way to harsh and not smooth like in the K30ED.Turst me if you own these speakers compare them side by side.
I was testing the intros of " Miranda crossgrove Kissing you .FLAC" and " You belong with me .Flac " excelent sounding intros
If you have the K70 or K90 you probably know how strong this tweeter can get , I am about to do more research to see if I can make my
K90 sound like my K130Ed wich sounds better than the pioneer . I bought these bc I wanted to use them as my car speakers but now im liking them to much
and they actually bring more life to my Martin logans.
