I skimmed through 9 pages of primarily off-topic stuff, Dan getting overexcited with his new Monoprice towers, which he did get at a reasonable price. I can't blame him as I'm also a sucker for cheap speakers that punch way above their price point. RIP tSc (the brand).\nI am curious about what else is there at this price point, around $800\/pr to be compared against.\nMonorpice ships for free but charges tax in NJ, so the total is almost $800 (at the current $375\/each price)\n\nI could only think of CMT-340SE. Including pedestals and shipping (no tax in NJ for some reason) - the total is $850\nI know the petite Ascents can't fully match the bass extension of Monolith T6 towers but likely offer smoother midrange and treble?\n\nHHow much were those new Heco's? They looked pretty good... a touch more expensive iirc.
