Thanks AndreG! Yeah, I'm going to set them both up for a shootout. I don't find the horns harsh at all. I imagine the Heresys will win the mids and highs battle, but the JBLs will probably win the battle of the bass, though the JBLs are not bass heavy and are extremely balanced as they are professional mixing speakers (4411). The JBL sensitivity is 90db and I guess the Heresys are 96db and man do I notice the difference. My 75 watt McIntosh amp really drives the Heresys better, not that it struggled with the JBLs, but you can sort of hear the "ease" if that makes sense? Now that I've lived with these Heresy 1s for a week and a half, one thing they are making me ask myself is, "how much bass do you really need?" Because the H1s certainly provide enough, even up on stands. It makes me sort of question how much we may, even unintentionally, boost the bass, unnaturally? It's an interesting audiophile question. I think a few resistors in my McIntosh MA2275 have blown, because my phono stage is picking up some interference. It was low on the JBLs, but since the Heresys reveal more, I'm really hearing it. I should get it looked at, but man, this amp weighs 77lbs and it's up in the attic of my 1846 house. I dread having to carry it down the narrow stairway. The things we do for our hobby!
