I think the Studio 2 is a clever play.

A Genelec S360 retails for $9000 a pair, and is designed for customers who want more output than Genelec's smaller speaker.

I can only speculate on Danley's marketing, but I have a hunch that it's designed to compete with speakers like the S360.

Basically the Studio 2 should offer comparable output, but a few features that exceed Genelec:

1) The Studio 2 is a point source design

2) The Studio 2 has the Danley Synergy Xover

3) The Studio 2 is made in America

4) The Studio 2 costs less

One of the things that impressed me about the Studio 2s is that they're built like a tank. Right now, my reference speakers are Yamaha DXR12s. For $1400 a pair, their performance is ridiculous.

But even at modest volume levels, as in "90db", you can feel vibrations coming from the plastic cabinet. And the woofer is potato quality.

The Yamaha is a great example of what you can do on a limited budget. Similar to how I feel about my Behringers, you get a LOT of loudspeaker for the money.

But even from the first note, the Studio 2s seemed more dynamic, and I think the cabinet plays a big role in this. Danley's cabinet maker is NOT cutting corners.

It should give Genelec a run for their money, IMHO.

But...6.5” coax vs 10” 2-way.
