If that observation is correct then this is both good and bad news. The good news is that the similarity may reflect the accuracy of reproduction. If speakers are correct, shouldn't they all sound the same? In that case one could listen to S9, S10, Orion, or NaO and they all *should* sound the same?

The bad news is then there is little room for improvements? And what's left is about getting value for money? And that means using L21 is not the way to go because P13 (and other smaller mids) are cheaper, not to mention the added complexity of notch filter, larger baffle (looks), more expensive tweeter requirements etc. of the larger L21.
