Overall the most enjoyable speaker I have ever owned. In the past I have owned Quad electrostatics. Ruark Crusaders, Dynaudio Contour1.3s, Castle Howards, and Naim Intros. I now use a pair of Usher Be-718 diamonds which are superbly balanced and unbeatable speakers given their price of 1500 GBP. Female vocals melt, treble is just simply believable and base is amazing given they are only a stand mount speaker. There will obviously be better speakers if size & money is no object, but in the real world these will be very, very hard to beat.
Currently used with Leema Antilla CD, Graaf GM50 valve amp (50 WPC), Chord signature interconnects & speaker cables Dynaudio speaker stands
