Must try to listen to some
Mmmmhh, I originally replied just with 'no' but I bought a new pair of Ushers S520's many, many a moon ago. I already had a pair of said Missions 751 which I picked up cheaply. They did not stay long. - I thought at the time the Ushers were much better but to be honest I can't recall how exactly they sounded.
The original ones I think? The Freedoms didn't half suck when they swapped out the tweeter for that silk dome thing. Bad move. Robbed them of the life that made the originals really sing.
Thanks for that - I've never heard the Freedoms directly against the originals. I've been half-looking for some Freedoms to do an actual test, but maybe I won't bother. I have (original) 752 and 753 at the moment. They are going to be part of a 5.1 system, but the amp will also be used for 'movies' in a 7.2 or even 9.2 config, so I was thinking to add in some 751 as the rears.
