I was so tempted by this one. I'm hard pressed to find a good pair of speakers for my application. The best choices at this price point -- basically these or the Philharmonic BMR's -- will be borderline with respect to sensitivity. My amps are a pair of really sweet modified Dynaco Mark IV monoblocks, fronted by an Audible Illusions Modulus 3B preamp (analog source is a vintage Rega Planar 3 with Incognito rewire kit). The Dynas are probably only good for about 40 watts, so I'm at the low end of the power requirements for just about all quality affordable speakers. I'm currently using a pair of vintage Klipsch Forte's, and they are super sensitive, a great match spec-wise for low power tube amps, but those horns wear me out, and my wife hates the big box look. In the end I think I will pass on these and go for the Philharmonics.

The rest of the story: I was recommended to try Focal speakers, and I got a pair of the Aria 906's with matching stands. Not impressive at first, but after break in they are fantastic, and not at all power hungry. I'm a happy camper with this choice.

Any thoughts or feedback for those that got in on the last drop? Love to hear your thoughts.
I have the monitor audio gold 100’s with their ribbon tweeter and I really like them. Still would love to get a pair of Sierra 2’s or Sierra Luna’s for my office.
Thanks.

I'm sure you can find a ton of impressions on the Ascend forum.
Very detailed and sweet(not harsh) sound, Wide sweet spot, Pin point imaging
Bamboo cabinets are rock solid and the speaker looks great in both my Natural and Expresso colors
Massdrop purchased speakers did not come with Ascend stickers and hand gloves, which was a bummer but i didn't worry too much about it

Wow, this drop shipped almost 3 weeks early - not the norm here at MD. Do thanks go to MD, Ascend, or both?

Yeh, thats all that matters
There should be a magnetic cover on the ribbon tweeter that you need to slide it(upwards?) to take it off. Be careful not to touch the tweeter itself during this

I'll see how these compare to my P3ESR's. Thanks for the warning about the tweeter.
