My "problem" with the Alexias is that to me they sounded closer to the Sasha W/P than to the Maxx 3; generally speaking the jump from $28k to $48k should seem subjectively larger than the jump from $48k to $69k. And as I said, some speakers down near the Sasha's price seem very close overall to the Alexias. Oh well, lots more listening today
rbbert, you need to have a second look because if that was Sasha sound I heard why wouldn't I buy a Sasha.
Where I was sitting I was stunned at how wide and deep the sound stage was even with the speakers quite toed in.
