No - it is like sopranino version of Klipschorn. I like it for chamber music, baroque, etc, anything not desperately requiring proper deep bass. While not definitive in anything, it does have good dynamics and can be pretty enjoyable
with material not relying on bass. It is the nightmare for deep basshead listeners - it can not give anything like proper bass foundation in a large(r) symphony, for example - not to mention electronica, rap, dubstep, etc.
It can sound very lifelike - that is how it survived in production for so long, giving nearly "true" Klipsch sound to the people who lack the proper space and/or wallet to accomodate true horns. I was quite pleasently surprised by a pair of a friend, who bought them new approx 5 years ago. For smaller rooms, for non Marcus Miller type afficionados can be the right decision at about their price point. Very efficient; can be driven with minuscule tube amps , so if you are SET (Single Ended Triode) HSD ( Hollow State Device ) lover, quite a good pairing with Heresy.
If you do not have them already, please do report how do they sound to you in your system after you have some time with them - useful to others that may be interested in this kind of sound.
