The speakers changed quite a bit after 24 hours. Can't wait to get more time on them and with the new Sigma SC! Already sounding absolutely amazing.

They have 300 hours on them and have definitely settled in. There are pluses and minuses with all speakers and these are no different. First ... compared to my Martin Logan Ethos they don’t throw as big and holographic of a soundstage but I knew that going in. What they do so well is throw a totally rock solid image and soundstage with really great depth between and if appropriate outside the speakers as well. It’s almost startling at times the image is so incredibly solid. The clarity and transparency across the entire spectrum is also an area where these speakers excel. They have a slight warmth in the lower midrange but I tend to like that and is part of why I bought them. They are very sensitive to any changes which hasn’t really made them difficult as much as flexible. I still have my Logan’s in another room and my wife really likes them and so do i. I am enjoying the benefits the Wilsons brought which for me outweighed the slight but definite reduction in overall presentation size ... especially height ... from the Logan’s. I will say my pair of BF212s blended very easily with the Wilson’s. At the end of the day I’m really enjoying the setup

Thats a good write up on how the speakers are, i would like to hear how they do in term of separation inside the soundstage, i think between people in a group both sidewise as well as in depth , hope i explained good enough ?

Did the Sasha’s end up in the same location as your Ethos had been?

The Soundstage is very well defined and the images are very "real". Almost startling how solid the images are. You can hear the space between instruments and voices left and to right and front to back with solid outlines of the sounds. So the separation is very good in all directions. Just don't listen to the Alexia v2's. They go quite a bit further there as well as bass response. But for almost double the price you might expect that.

The Sasha's ended up about a foot further apart and about a foot closer to the wall than the Ethos. I'm amazed at how solid the imaging is even with the speakers further apart. Quite a bit of toe in though but the sound is amazing.
