ODINDo yourself a favor and give serious consideration to building a pair of Odin MKII from a kit vendor in the US called Madisound.
I own a pair down form these and the speakers are simply stunning.
They use SEAS drivers. Buying something like this sight unseen is a huge leap of faith. Here is what sold me:
These speakers have two woofers and a mid tweeter. There is (was?) a consumer retail speaker by Jamo that has the same drivers -- except only one woofer and one tweeter. I went to audition the Jamo so I could hear what I was considering buying.
The guy in the store said they did not stock that Jamo, but used to. I asked how much. $3000 US. I said why did you stop selling them? Nobody would buy a speaker that small for $3K. I asked how they sounded. He said they are the best speaker he ever heard. That sold me at $1000 for the Odins (A modle down from Odin MKII)
The cabinents are extremely high grade, and the components are very good.
This speaker would easily cost more than $3000 retail, but since you screw it together and solder it yourself, you save a lot of money.
I have nothing to do with Madisound. The speakers are just that good. Very natural, uncolored sound, with tight, deep punchy bass. Female vocals are like she is standing in the room. I think the kit is $1600 US.
