Hi, have not dropped in on this thread for a while, but the Fanes are holding up very well. They have become an integral and familiar part of my particular audio soundscape. They play music, purely and simply. To my ears they get on with the job with no fuss, favoring no one genre over any other. They work equally well with both my low powered SE tube amp, and my 60W solid state power amp. I can't now, imagine audio life without them.

In hi-fi terms, as they have loosened up over the four months they have been in the system, the bass has become a bit more extended.

Being a high efficiency driver, fitted into what I would term a reasonably sized 80 Litre sealed cab, they are never going to generate room-shaking LF, but cabs against the wall, bass is even, tight, detailed and completely free of any kind of murk or boom.

The overall presentation is rich, dynamic, forward of the speakers, but never too 'in your face' shrill or nasty. They tend to tell you what's right about your music, rather than throwing faults into your lap. As such they are very easy to live with and provide a sympathetic window into your music collection.

I've not heard them in baffles, but one or two people I've spoken to are considering building baffles for them.

Its a long time since I posted here, but here are my current office system speakers. Jordan Eikona in original Blue Room Minipod cabinets. Amazingly they fit perfectly with no mods needed! So obviously the tweeter has been blanked off and the port too, so they are now sealed and roll off at around 70hz. Perfectly low enough to get good integration with a BK subwoofer. I tried a few small cabinets for the Eikona's but these sound the best, the shape certainly helps, very low baffle defraction effects, and also breaking up standing waves internally, aided by the damping material too. These are great wide range drivers, very transparent, clean, clear and work very well in the near field, about 3 feet away currently!

I’d used stacked pairs of 901s powered by Crown DC 300 or BGW500 amps as dance party systems “back in the day” and they could definitely play louder than safe, but were not refined, nor had any of the imaging specificity for which I’d be looking.

if i wasn't moving toward wall mounted systems (off the floor) i'd go with one of the PE systems by DB Keele or something like it from Visaton.
