    I always wanted 4430 for my second system, I live in Houstonand these speakers are hard to come by, I finally located a pair, took some CD’sand went to see how they sound. Bottom line they did not impress at all, thehigh frequency was definitely lacking.
    My main speakers are DIY 4350’s and I strictly listen toclassical, my reference for high frequency performance was the 4350, andcompared to the big four way system I did not like the sound of 4430.

    Agree, these should make short work of the 4430.

    But the difference in price ($14K vs probably 2.5K at most) can give one pause.
