I just wanted to post this because I bought the kit (with flat pack and their superior crossovers) and I put it together. It was straightforward but I didn’t get a chance to finish the outside of the cabinets yet.
All I can say is WOW - they sound really damn good! Definitely worth the price and they work awesome in nearfield. Also I don’t think they require a sub for a desk setup. They have a lot of fullness and heft to the sound while still being very detailed and clear. I have Buchardt S400s and I like these equally as much (for different purpose, not filling a large room like the S400s). They are better at different things so I won’t go into a direct comparison.
Rave review here, maybe not $5k speakers like he says but damn good for the money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4w-aweNg9o
Thought I’d post if anyone was wondering how these sound. I was curious to see some reviews from regular people (not reviewers) before I ordered a kit. I’m glad I gave them a chance!
Apparently there is a new version with upgraded crossovers and tweeters coming soon so I’d wait for that, ETA was a few weeks if I remember correctly.
