I'm not sure where the reviewer got these speakers, but I've been a user of their components for years and never saw these in their production list. They make many fine bookshelf and floor standing speakers, but these are foreign to me in every way. They have never found favor at the big box stores, and sell most of their products through a limited number of dealerships. Most of their top end speakers use ribbon tweeters which these do not. Maybe these are the pre-HiVi ownership?????
