Interesting - I'm trying to find out if it has no rear firing port... in front instead


and: "a rear panel filter switch is provided to adapt the monitor’s low frequency characteristics for the effects of boundary conditions"


I am adding it to my list of speakers for the office - THANKS!

"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."
