"When I finally sat down to listen I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It was the best sound I’ve ever heard in my home — and I’ve had some unbelievable sound systems in my living rooms over the years." ~ www.nbcnews.com

Have you ever heard any? I have.

Have you ever seen the frequency response graph?

While I can hear that they have magic to them (whether it's different distortion, or lack of distortion, or transient response, I can't say), that frequency response graph is true. The people who adore them have forgiven the frequency response. I don't think I could.

Cheers,
David.

Yes, that seems to be just the tweeters though. The full response is in Google image search.
