RE: Yes, for serious listening

I am not sure but, I am amazed at what I am hearing, by not hearing the cabinet, music that I have been listening to since the 60's, sounds more spatial, Listened to "Abbey Road", I have played this
a zillion times, may have never really heard it until last night.
I have always felt that the piano is the true test of the sound of a speaker. Keith Jarret at Carnegie sounds "alive".
I have always liked the open sound of electrostatics, I have listened to box speakers my whole life, my hearing/brain may be biased, yet I am always listening for "something" better, that drives my wife crazy, generally she thinks all of these box speakers I have owned over the years sound the same, she really likes these...she also liked the Ohm speaker.
I am working a plan to acquire an active x over, and cut the bottom 80hz from the 225"s.
Then add a sub. New territory for me. Suggestions totally appreciated.
