Me likey.
I want to give em' a go for shits and giggles.    A local guy at my hi-fi shop said he heard them and was super impressed at their price point.   That's my kinda logic.

everything, right at the speaker.   bluetooth, usb, coax, toslink, 3.5mm, RCA and phono right on the back.  Plug n' Play !

I've seen those Klipsch for $100 a piece new on ebay and wondered if they are plastic resin?

you maybe saw the R-15   ?    those are all over ebay for $99 each.
these are brand new, and there is one set up there for full retail.

If the bluetooth technology improves its bandwidth, we're talking chord-cutting here.  Especially with Atmos.   Can you imagine having an array of bluetooth speakers up near the ceiling, out of the ole lady's eyesight, and you just put on the "The Wall" Album as she pulls out of the driveway........ ?  Can ya?  :drunk:

The reviews look promising.  From what I've read, the sound is described on the slightly bright side of neutral; with a ~5-inch woofer I wouldn't expect them to be bass-heavy and the low-end hits only 62 Hz.  The companion sub (R-115SW) can be had for $899. :P

Dynaudio has been offering the Xeo series for a few years. They sound pretty good, but are pricey. I previewed a set shortly after they were released, but opted for wired instead. Since you need to plug them in, they don't really save you from all that much cabling...

Bingo! I would still like to give them a go in my old gutted victrola cabinet.
