Ouch! $300!\nI thought you had returned them when an open box 9.2 showed up on the Accessories4Less website for $1300.\n\n\nThe Accessories4less return policy makes you think about how badly you want to do a return. It's my fault for not contemplating what happens if they did not fit my taste. The glowing reviews drove me to to push the buy button and I just purchased a lesson in return policy reading too. :D \n\nIf I really hated the Vento Reference 9.2 I would have returned them. They have amazing bass for such a small speaker and extended treble. They're just a little harsh compared to what I'm use to. By placing them up 7 feet as High's they don't face directly at the good seats but they add another interesting layer of sound with those aluminum tweeters. The Denon 4500 lets me turn them on or off as taste desires with a button on the remote and lately they have been on more than off.\n\nI really want to try a pair of Martin Logan ESL X in my home. So with this lesson in hand I'll probably use Best Buy or Crutchfield just in case I need to do a return. Thanks for all your help exposing me to other speaker options. Blessings.
