I rigged up some adapter cables so I didn't have to pull out any other amps and so I could run them off the current setup more easily. To be totally honest, these things are surprisingly decent. For the price, not bad at all. As the review mentioned, they do tend toward the higher end, but the top end is very smooth and pleasant. They throw a very wide stage for their size, and they are pretty darn tiny. To my ears they lack very fine detail across the board, but that's being really picky, especially for something with no x-over and at this price point.
First listen was Dave Brubeck Concord on a Midsummer Night
SACD. An extremely well recorded live disc with a lot of quiet, soft, warm mids and fine details. The sounds are all there, they just lack some depth and three dimensionality, but they really don't disappoint. Highs are crisp and clean without sizzle, even when pushed pretty hard.
Currently listening to the Princess Mononoke Sountrack
, which has a lot of busy orchestrations and other quiet tracks with subtle detail, and they're doing quite well with it as well. I'll throw some more stuff at them today and
