The emphasis is on their overall gestalt as opposed to highlighting any part of their presentation. Think Harbeth here.
These speakers are about the music, not the critical listener looking to dissect equipment performance.

Not only did they make me want to get up and dance, but they seemed to want to dance with me.
The bass extension and presentation of the P5 was quite something; taut, clean, impactful, and extended.
Mats’ use of a ported design is one of the best I’ve heard at this price point.
They offer nothing offensive and can be listened to relentlessly with zero fatigue—just a great speaker. Be warned.
The stage goes big—I’m talking really tall, really deep, and really wide. The perception of instruments is from all around the speaker but never from the speaker.
You can get lost in the reality of the stage they develop; and it adds tremendously to their overall performance.
