@tonydennison Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe he inquired about sound quality.
High horses not required.
I had them for a minute. Knew little about them when I acquired them other than I enjoyed them more Magico A5 in the same price range. I returned them once I found they were Chifi. Not because of quality but wanted all USA. Focals sounded better to me than Perlisten but knew that was not USA at time...
So let me get this straight: you acquired them, as in bought, but did not know they were made in China? Then after you had them in your home for a while, you learned they were made in China, so you returned them because you wanted USA. Then you got Focal, which I assume you know are made in France. LOL!!!
For those interested in the Perlisten story, you can read more HERE. Yes, they are made in China, but in a factory they own. The Chinese guy who has the factory is a member of ownership group.
