I am wondering if there is anyone here who owns these speakers who could give a nice review and opinions of them. I am rather intruiged by them and am considering getting a pair. I have heard the F2.2's and like the sound of them and am wondering how the LS-500B's compare to them. I would appreciate any info as to what advantages either model has on the other. I already know the 2.2's have 8" woofers vs. 6 1/2" on the 500's so they probably put out more bass. I also know the tweeters are diffferent and wonder how they compare. I looked in the Athena owner's thread and didn't really find much on the LS-500B. I know I can get the 2.2's cheaper on closeout, but honestly I like the appearance of the 500's better. Unfortunately I cannot audition the 500's locally so I am hoping someone here can help. I know some consider Athena's bright, but I honestly prefer a slightly bright sound (perhaps it is because of loss of some hearing from going to many very loud rock concerts when I was younger). Anyhow, thanks in advance for any input anyone can give.
