Welcome to the dark side, they are indeed. Wait until you put a Crown k2 or a QSC DCA amp on them.

I don’t know… I have a Marantz 1060 integrated coming from my guy in Chicago, and also an HK A402 which I am looking forward to putting on these. I have my old Denon garage receiver on them right now and they sound pretty damn good. Should be interesting.

I know, I was afraid of that.  But, they've only been outside, not in the primary listening area yet.....might be awhile.

Word of warning. DO NOT listen to any variants with that big ugly no good 402 plastic horn on them.

You’re now playing with “big boy toys” as if LS and KHorns aren’t big boy enough. I still regret selling the 904 Frankensteins with the EAW horn sitting atop. I do believe I enjoyed those equally as much if not more than KHorns. 
Dave A is correct - that plastic 402 ain’t worth the material it’s molded from. Which is why I wrapped mine in blue - like two lightening bolts waiting to zap you -

How do they stack up to the EV's?  I know you've had them both.

Yep. Big Badass Bass horns are an even bigger spoiler. Just ask DaveA!

I believe Maron affectionally called it a Warthog... I bow in his remembrance.
