Steve Guttenburg couldn’t make up his mind about his own personal speakers. He kept raving about the Sonus Faber evos and then Amati futura staying that was his end game, then all of a sudden he moves to a totally different sound the Focal Sopra 2.

Ever since then I take his comments with a huge grain of salt.

With stand-mounts, room size and positioning is everything, so reviewers comments become very conditional.

If you need more bass you can always add a sub, but part of the attraction with most stand-mounts stems from the fact that they're a 2-way design, so there's usually a level of coherence and precision of soundstage imaging that's difficult for any 3 or 4-way to match.

I haven't heard the Elac's as yet so that's something I must do.

The Elac and the 700 are quite different, with the Elac being a 3-way.
