Bought this assembled a while back, finally spent some time with it this weekend as part of an un-official shootout. Impressed with it at any price, very impressed with it at this price. Very clean, detailed and up-front throughout, no immediate flaws. Not very airy, doesn't extend ultra high which is fine. Its one weakness appeared when trying to drive the dual 15" woofers on my PAP Trio 15s at high volume, control of the bass started slipping a bit. Still good, nothing egregious but noticeable. This thing would be a winner with a smaller speaker set up, great value.
