Grills or no grills on Lore?
I have not heard anybody complaining on the subject of grills (or absense of thouse) on Lore, would it be safe to assume then that it is purely 'looks' matter?
Thank you
Trailsend - it would appear that the only thing that the Emo 8.3a and Lore have in common is price. You may want to compare other single or full range driver speakers to the Lore. The Emo is a conventional speaker and will undoubtably sound 100% different. May be a great speaker thoough, just not apples to apples.
Hi all ! On large scale loud stuff the Lore's are effortless. Mine are loud and clear with 15wpc .
Gpowered- Thanks for your comment. Actually I already own a pair of Lores, but am always looking to hear how they might compare to other speakers. Being from a small town my options for auditioning speakers is very limited. So when I bought my Lores it was based solely on reviews. I think you are right in that comparing the Lores to the Emotivas is not comparing apples to apples. Even though I have not had a chance to listen to the Emotivas I did get a chance to listen the Zu Omens, which everybody seems to compare the Lores to. Here are my thoughts about the Omens if you or anyone else is interested. I found Omens to be a good speaker. Considering various listening preferences they maybe just what some are looking for, unfortunately this was not the case for me. I found the midrange frequencies on the Omens to be very much forward as opposed to the Lores, almost to the point of being overwhelming. I found there was a noticeable difference in bass response. The Lores had more of it, which was well defined delivering what I call a punch as opposed to the Omens. I bought the Lores with this in mind and have not been disappointed. Again others may find a less defined bass more appealing, I do not. My only criticism of the Lores is that the high end can be a bit more accentuated than I like. However, this does vary from recording to recording. That being said it probably does not come as much of a surprise but I much prefer the Lores.
