Yea I just went to his site I had a few discussions with him back in the day. I am telling you the Kestrels still sound amazing hard to beat.
I highly suggest if you can get your hands on a pair well worth it.
Have Fun be Safe Stay Well.
I had a pair of Kestrel HRs and then moved up to the HR Shearwaters. I agree with our PM: the Shearwaters are better in all aspects. They are still my speakers to this day and I still love their sound!
