I heard the salon2's in an admittedly difficult room and the owner had a pair of J&L subs crossed over at 80 hz so the impression was one of pumping bass and a tweeter that did a great job at putting a lot of air around vocals and instruments while the midrange seemed washed out, Diane Krall singing her voice had little tone(pitch?) with tons of air around it. The room is a nightmare 20'x20'x20' and open to most of the rest of the 4000+sq/ft house(my whole house would fit in his garage). and he's been thru a long list of hi end speakers to get as close as he has. I bought my Salons a little over a year ago and the hegel made them sound amazing so I bought it, but I can't find a spot in my room to get them to image!
