Very few speakers have the presence, the impact and the realism of these speakers.
As they come they are excellent with amazing impact especially in the bass. Very few speakers can reproduce a bass drum with such realism, and the ribbon tweeter is just magical in its transparency.
Now take these, tri-amp them and reinforce their stands with upright supports and you have a speaker that easily rivals and could even beat most of today's very best!
When properly set up, with tri-amp, stand support and room location, nothing comes close to the bass impact, accuracy and realism of the of the Tympani IVa !
The rest of the sound is excellent too! Violins clearly present their timbre, pianos, and even the human voice, especially the female voice is reproduced with such accuracy and realism to be startling, even when expected!!
These are true gems that need to be saved and cherished. When correctly adjusted as mentioned above these can easily be the best and the only speakers one could possibly want.
