I wish they had the sub in the picture.   I'd also like to know the usable bottom end spec of just the towers.

I'd love to hear them, the review was positive treacle-sweet so there must be some real magic there.

With luck, in 20 or 30 years I might be able to pick up a pair at a decent price from Craigslist........

I got to hear the prototype a couple of years ago, and they were astounding.  The imaging is what really stands out to me.  how something so thin can create such an enormous sound stage was astonishing.

I had the pleasure of hearing Bob's ALS speakers a couple of years ago at the Axpona Audio show in Jaxonville, FL.  They bested every other speaker at the show in my opinion. 

Their sound was HUGE !

I have and love the Carver ALS Silver Editions. They have 48" ribbons and three 12" sub woofers on each side.
