Tom... did you get the stats on it, is it the same woofer and panel as the Vantage? I see a conventional port... that must mean that the tuning is also different.
Or is the Vista basically a Vantage without the amp?
Now I'm really baffled. The Vista weighs MORE than the Vantages? And is as tall as the Vantages - meaning that more than likely - if the cabinets are the exact same - the panel on the Vista is bigger?
Yet, the Vantage goes a whole 10hz lower...?
Me thinks something is wrong with the spec sheet...
It could be that the Vista uses a much larger enclosure cabinet - and this would account for the weight + they must've used it to add to the tuning of the woofer. Lastly, I think that a larger cabinet yields that partial panel-over-the-cabinet look.
Makes sense to me.
If the highs were over extended and the bass boomy, blame the room, and or setup because the new line of speakers are anything but boomy.ovature said:This thing is ugly! MLs used to look like sculptures. Now they look like panels attached to ugly boxes. I auditioned this thing and the bass was boomy and the the highs were over extended. I will gladly keep my SL3s, thank you. Vistas might be OK for HT, but lousy for 2 channel. I am using a Mac c2200 tube pre-amp, Mac 400 watt SS amp, Sony SCD77es SACD player
