Hola jjqiv. First thing regarding the CLSs is that they reflect the quality of the recording and the exact amount of bass in it. Be sure to have at least 1 meter away from the back wall and changing them back and forward from that position, so you can "tune" the best bass response. Remember that because the CLSs are free from cabinet, seting them to the room is the most important consideration. Your first impression will be like the CLSs are lack of bass, but they are not! they do have a very good bass...what happens is that you are used to listen dinamyc speakers at bass, and they reproduce it complette different than electrostatic bass. Tilt them a tittle on it's back, this way you will have much better high frequency energy and toe in them will make them to produce the best image and scenario. Please, don't make any tests until you have living with them at least one week! so you will get used to them and find what we, the crazy guys, like the CLSs over a lot of other models and speaker's brands.jjqiv said:My offer was accepted. I will be picking up a pair of original CLS's tonight. They will be replacing my trustly old SL3's. I can't wait!!!!

yep, that about covers the CLS experience the seamless range is real important to me. even though i just added a sub, i really only use it for video inputs (movies, tv, vcr) and have it disabled for 2 channel inputs like vinyl, cd and reel2reel.jjqiv said:What a completely fantastic set of speakers. Even better than I rememberred. Seamlessly intergrated from top to bottom. So musical. Midrange to die for. Great, detailed bass. Holographic imaging. Dynamic as crap.
Doorbells or knocking on doors in movies/TV made us teach the dog the command "false alarm". Usually followed by my muttering "gotta get sh*ttier speakers".jjqiv said:Some passages will make you jump in your seat.
