"In the end, I can put it very simply: although they will impress your friends, these speakers are not about that; they’re about making music. Regardless of the type of music, volume levels, or any other obvious factor, the Whispers put performers making music on a stage and let them play. That pretty well covers it, and it’s the highest praise I can think of for any speaker.
Value and Recommendation: All right, it’s difficult to refer to a pair of speakers whose cost approaches that of an entry level car as “$ensible.” If you can budget this kind of money for speakers, the value proposition can be argued simply in physical terms: many high-quality drivers, wonderful woodworking, lots of poundage. More importantly, though, the sound from the Whispers is uniquely good. Anyone auditioning speakers near or above this price level simply must hear the Whispers."
