nekobus, not only were they BA's, but you got the ratings right too.
Painful, crispy highs? Bass that is "a bit weak"?
Sign me up.
Do you think he would have given them a lower rating if the highs weren't painful? I'm just wondering what that guy thinks speakers should sound like.
That cracks me up. Thanks for a good laugh today, I needed one. I actually listened to a set of these once and kept hearing this buzzing sound and I traced it down to the pole they were mounted on. I thought to myself, "man this is a great piece of engineering..."
I knew it had to be five stars after reading:
"The speakers also have a good look to them, nice and modern without being to(sic) gaudy."
It reminds me of the guy at work who dropped a fortune on his Lifestyle system and kept telling everyone how great it was. One day I asked him if they were a little bit bright for music and he replied, "why would they be bright, they are black-they don't shine at all." It was the hardest straight face I have ever kept in my life.
It makes me want to stand outside any big box electronics store with an inexpensive psb or paradigm system cranked up and yell: "See what you people are missing!"
