I have to give a shout out to a great little speaker...I have a had a few speakers in my life... But these little speakers have blown me away...play loud..image great..the bass that come from them ...just has me SMH! And now you can upgrade them...life just got better!

 

They are a pretty good deal I would say. The build philosophy of Ascend is a lot like DIYers "throw expensive drivers in a box." Although some of the big design firms like Revel and Dynaudio are really making their value felt with curved baffles and cabinets, driver waveguides, etc, to make up for it, even if OEM cost of the drivers are not that high.

Glad to hear you like them. I am greatly considering either the sierra-1 or the cmt-340. I don't really want to spend more than $600 so I am leaning toward the 340s. What cabinet finish did you get out of curiosity?

I have the Gloss Expresso ...I just can't get over how good these are...I have their TP-24 stand...just the other day I use some Herbies Small Fat dots under them....even better sounding than the pads that came withe stands....the stands are filled with dried play sand...most of the music I play...I don't even miss the sub at all.

What are you implying?

 

That the drivers used in the Ascend are not expensive relative to the offerings available to DIYers AND that DIYers have any set design philosophy at all......or that your statements of value are anything more than a generalization at best. Sorry for the blunt reply since you asked for a clarification.

DIYers use off-the-shelf drivers. They can't build their own to their own specifications, or have the 3d modelling and physics suites to design their own mounted waveguides. Sorry you can't read.
