Earthquake, the company that makes knock-yer-sox-off subwoofers dabbles in full range speakers too. Their smaller tower speakers, the Saturn Orbitals ($1,400/pr), did a fantastic job with a drum solo. I definitely thought its big brother was responsible for the dynamic and forceful presentation. Unfortunately, when I asked for some full range, fully instrumented music to be played, the results were less impressive.
