I listen to a pair, and though it was average performance. But you might want to find a pair and listen youself.

The speakers I listend to were the 103. Just out of interest, I specifically went to listen to see if it was what I was looking for.

This was in a store, I do not recall what equipment was used. I specifically picked the MANGER test CD because that is also one of the CDs that I use as well.

I specifically picked pian portion of the test CD, because I know that this is where most speakers fail miserably.

My impression was, the piano did not have the transients and dynamics I am used to, much less than a real piano. Since this was over a year ago, I can't really remember much more. Originally I though maybe the humidity here is effecting it is some way, but MANGER though it should not be effected by humidity based on engineering judgement.

You should definitely listen to the Mangers before buying such expensive drivers, in particular as it seems to be something like a love and hate issue with them.
