If you ever make a trip out to the Pacific NW they're open to having you hear their speakers with no pressure to buy. They are built out of a shop in West Seattle. I was hooked when I heard them in person and bought a pair on the spot. Wish I had kept my pair but I went the full portable route for a period of time. They were in natural bamboo. I would want maple now anyway .
I was happy without a sub but some might want a little more punch at the low end. No problems for my main listening genre of jazz. They make a sub as well. Blumensteins have wonderful timbre and imaging. Their natural tone floored the buyer of my Blumensteins. Guy was in awe and he had some electrostatic speakers. They will reveal as much detail your amp can put out. It's basically a headphone experience without headphones. Really intimate. Easy to get lost with those speakers.
End of the line for me: CSP3 + Alpha Dogs + Blumenstein speakers. Occasional tube stocking stuffer too.
