More or less complete re-vamp of the original floor-standing Crusader, with a new tweeter and LE driver. Beautifully veneered ported (reflex) cabinet is heavily braced against panel resonances. The three drivers integrate nicely and the loudspeaker is relatively insensitive to room position. Particularly convincing in reproducing the human voice, with the bass not overly extended yet fast and facile. Admirable imaging and considerable depth of perspective.
