I can second this opinion (see my post above). I find that the L82s provide plenty of detail. Consider, for instance, the notorious clicking of Bob Dylan's coat-sleeve buttons on his guitar's pick guard on Blood on the Tracks. I can hear the clicks clear as a bell on my L82s. Of course, I have not heard the L100s so perhaps What Hi-Fi has better context to make its observation.With all due respect for the reviewer's opinion, I must say I strongly disagree in particular with one statement, that is that these speakers lack finesse due to the fact that the tweeter is crossed over lower than what it is in the L100. I am listening to the L82 as I am typing and can clearly hear all the nuances and details of my test tracks, many of which were not nearly as well-rendered in previous speakers I have owned which costed much more (e.g. B&W 805 D3). I feel that such a strong comment should be substantiated by some facts. Was the tweeter distortion measured, showing a peak above the crossover frequency which could explain the alleged lack of finesse? My subjective experience is that these speakers do not lack finesse in the slightest amount.
