these 3 ways have really great mid detail but a much more accurate bass response than the NS10. Top can be a bit fatiguing, but that's 3 ways. They like a lot of clean power. I just hooked these guys back up recently after taking them out of storage. They belonged to my late wife originally, which is surprising given her utter contempt for sound quality or even decent music while she was alive, but hey! Its another pair of great monitors for my collection. They're not really meant to be studio monitors but I like 'em a lot.
