I just wanted to share my initial experience with you folks regarding the Prodigys. Less than three weeks ago I purchased a new pair of Ascent i's and I was reasonably happy with them (except for some "quirks" from being new). I was able, though, to find a pair of Prodigys in my vicinity (by that, I mean that I drove 1,500 miles R/T to get them: Oregon to Utah and back). I hooked up the Prodigys and turned on my Dynalab MD108 (trust me, there's a reason for this) and ... my jaw sustained a serious fracture for its plumet. Ever read some of the reviews claiming that with a good antenna the MD108 can sound as good as a CD player? Umm... well ... thanks to the Prodigys that's entirely plausible. Three-dimensional imaging? You betcha! And this from a radio! I think the Ascent i is a great speaker but I wasn't prepared for the difference between it and the Prodigys. For those who may be contemplating purchasing the Prodigys all I can say is DO IT!!!! The past six hours have been some of the most revelatory times I've spent with audio equipment.
