    your talking about the big krypton??
    edit: just looked at the capital show, they had the floorstander with dual 6.5 inch woofers. I had very similar speaker with waveguide and same midbass.
    have you noticed their soundstage?

    how was the spatial room, and the Harbeth room?

    I believe it was the Krypton in wood grain. Could've been 6.5 inch but who knows. They had a smaller white floorstander that wasn't as good. Bigger is better it seems with Amphion. Soundstage is okay but not exceptional due to poor midrange dynamics. The floorstanders are way better than the bad nearfields. The brand is overpriced but was the best thing there.

    Spatial was awful. Zero treble detail while being harsh/forward at the same time. No resolution of the opening drum roll hash on older masters of Metallica's Kill 'em All "Hit the Lights"; it was smoothed over while being too forward at the same time. You know Harbeth will be smash it with a hammer bad...

    Super warm and bloomy; they're the BBC LS3/5A taken up in warmth and bloom. If you want Brit-fi, go ATC.

    No. Brit-fi gets that sound through cab resonances rather than veiled woofers. If that's what you want, you'll hate the bigger Amphions. Check out ATC for that British sound done tastefully. If you want big, powered Sennheiser 600/650, go Neumann, preferably bigger than the 120. They have the Sennheiser warmth and veil you want :)
