I think those who like AN E will like them and these are better. Joel of 6 moons also has a review on them if you want to do further reading
    Have not been impressed with any of the hORNs speakers except the Universum, which is very good. However, I haven't heard these monitors...I would be inclined to go with JBL studio monitors though if going down that road.

    These are not to my liking but they are similar to AN E in looks and set up and similar style of sound but better. I have heard them doing very well what they do though I personally would go for a full horn like the universum but exlibris has different space requirements and tastes
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    A distributor friend, whose ears I trust, is not a big fan of horns generally but he has heard the Universum and the Odeon horns at the Munich show and he likes them very much. He's been telling me about the Universum for a few years now. I do hope to hear both of these someday. There is a hORNS distributor locally but he's not planning on bring the Universum in.

    Well, you know that the Universum is not a full horn, right? The bass is some kind of vented tapered tube. What I found amazing was that the bass driver is doing up to 350Hz or so and even firing at the floor it seems to blend well with the midrange horn. Not sure how they pulled off that trick...perhaps it shows up in the measurments but it was not obvious from the sound.

    No, I didn't know that.

    Yes the bass works really neat though
