Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Your Experience With Lores

I like my Lores quite a bit. Are they perfect? Nope. I cheated by re-doing the crossovers with some boutique parts that made a noticeable improvement, and even after that they're still not perfect. But even in un-modded form they brought across the emotion and soul of the music. My last pair of $12k speakers didn't. The $10k pair before that didn't either. Both were far more accomplished in the usual audiophile parameters, and both were far less accomplished at drawing me into the art of the performance. It's been a very long time since I had a speaker that generates music so well. So I forgive the Lores for their flaws and enjoy them for what they do well. And when I want to, I can blast them to beyond-stupid SPL's with 20 watts of SET power. Not that I do it often, but it's damn sure fun after consuming quantities of imported libations. :) And, oh yeah, they were $1k. Add $300 and some of my labor on the crossovers.

Now the big question: If I had spent $13k on them instead of $1.3k, would I be as forgiving of their flaws?
