"Hissy hiss hiss"
These are great speakers with one major flaw...the hiss coming from the HF/Mid driver is ridiculously loud. It’s audible at 3m(over 10 feet!) away...how they couldn’t remedy this is beyond me. Regarding all other aspects, it’s truly quite impressive. Open, revealing midrange, honest low-end, crisp highs...it’s a shame the hiss is so bad. You would have thought they had learned from the LP series. The most received complaint was hiss, and they did little to nothing about it. Not the smartest thing to do for a new company. They should honestly address this issue and come out with a new version, offering current owners a free replacement. I’ll bet the returns on these will be SUPER high...hope they do the right thing and fix it, I’d gladly pay $50 more per monitor for no hiss.
