I own a pair of L26's, how do they compare in sound to the L77 Lancer?

Thanks!

Having owned both... for all the differences, they are much more similar than different.

IME, the L26 is a bit more efficient, at the cost of a bit boomier bass than the L77- which seems to be better damped, both cabinet and driver wise. OTOH, the mids on the L26 seem to be naturally a bit smoother, than the L77. Also, the more conventional driver locations on the L26, seem to lead to better soundstaging and imaging, but if you place the L77 right (taller stands, to get the mid-mounted LE20 tweeter up high enough), it does somewhat better than it does low- to- the- floor.

But, we're talking SUBTLE degrees here... if you like one, you'll like the other one, almost undoubtedly.

Regards,
Gordon.
