I have been listening to equipment and speakers, music that is , since the 50s. I have owned original marantz tube equip., mcintosh tube/ss, linn, cary, pass, ads,totem, vandersteen, b&w, to name a few and that is just a few. I have spent a fortune on equipment and music in the last 50 years, just sold my record collection of over 6000 lps, radio dj for many a year....so enough of the background. I have owned vandersteen 2ce sig. with their Q sub which is set up for music and found it to be from top to bottom the most satisfying purchase in loudspeakers to date. Having the sub just added so much life to the midrange, percussion and strings, upper octaves that i really enjoyed it. You don't have to have the sub....the speaker itself is from top to bottom the most satisfying speaker i have listen too for the money. Most wives don't like it because it looks like and speaker with just the wrap, but it doesn't jump out with overwhelming presence., power is necessary.
