Heard these last month in an Apple store in London and they are really impressive. Stood toe-to toe with B&W and better than Bose. I bought them back here for $200 at Apple and they are fantastic!!
Never heard of these guys before I heard this speaker, but did some research on their site, and this is a pretty interesting company. They are in a lot of AV receivers doing room EQ for companies like Denon, Mac Intosh, and Onkyo, and also use their technology in Imax theaters, and in car sound for Jaguar.
Started by a couple audio R&D professors from USC, one of whom invented THX.
