Just checking in to say that my Clears are ruining my speaker setup. I literally ran a sine sweep to make sure my office speakers weren't broken after switching to them from my Clears. Those speakers are just entry level little bookshelves, so it's not a fair comparison, but the clarity and presence I hear with the Clears is a constant delight. Re: bass, Tidal tossed me a song earlier today that really shows off what the Clears can do down low. So much fun.
