Default Advent Laureate Floorstanding Main Speaker Technical Specifications

Before I purchased these speakers for a second system, I could not
find any reviews or technical specs anywhere on the web. For others
under the same dilema, here they go:

This review is for a pair of ADVENT LAUREATE. For their price point,
they are solid performers: thight and satisfying bass, convincing
middles and crisp highs. Good soundstage and accuracy. Outstanding
imaging, especially for the money.
At home w/classical music or rock. Warm and detailed sound, especially
reproducing voices.
