There's quite a big difference. The originals had a sweetness and subletly to the mid range, which made them sound like considerably more expensive speakers. They could also go low for pretty small speakers but give them 12 inches from the wall behind and you should be able to control any boominess. Voices and acoustic instruments sounded pretty wonderful on these and though they rolled off a bit in the treble, they never sounded harsh. The new speaker certainly gained more HF extension but that silky mid range and the lovely coherence to the sound was gone imo.

Cheers for that, certainly listening to the 5.2's if I was to criticise them the low to mid bass is just a bit overpowering, it has a lovely rich tone to it but tend to find the mid / upper vocals get a bit lost.

I've tried tweaking the treble and dropping the bass they just seem to lose the fulness of sound and affects the tone which is what seperates them from the other speakers .... In an ideal world it feels like you'd want to be sitting at a mixing desk and take the comparitive volume of bass down without affecting it's tone.
