I don't have any experience with these but they have glowing reviews. I was just about to pull the trigger on the 2.0s but might get these instead.

Historic low on Amazon is $316.

In for a pair for home auditioning. Also waiting for the NHT C-3s to drop back down to the $270 range. What's Amazon's return policy on speakers? I mean, can I just return them if I don't like the way they sound, or will they hit me with a restocking fee?

These are my current speakers. Sound signature is laid back, refined, and balanced to leaning on the warmer side of neutral. They also have a wide and 3 dimensional soundstage if you set them up correctly. They also need a beefier amp than most other bookshelves since they are 4 ohm and 85 dB sensitivity. But if you like that type of sound, I'm not sure you could do better in this price range as I tried many of the popular speakers $400 and under (KEF Q150, Wharfedale Diamond 225, Wharfedale Denton 80th Anniversary, Infinity R162, Jamo S803, Sony Core SSCS5, Pioneer BS22, etc).

I have returned speakers to Amazon after auditioning them with no restocking fees. I'm not sure about return shipping costs though. I am fortunate to live close to an Amazon Hub so I was able to drop them off for free return shipping. Perhaps you could do the same thing at Kohl's if you live close enough to one.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm getting ready to audition at least 3 pairs through Amazon, so it's good to know I won't get hit with a restocking fee. Unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near an Amazon Hub. I do have a couple of Kohl's by me but I think they function much like a mailing/shipping service like USPS or UPS. So I'll get free return shipping based on their return criteria, no? What did you use as your reason for return?

I don't recall what I used as my reason for return. But I don't think it matters. If it's within the 30 day return window, they should accept it.

Here's the information for Amazon return shipping through Kohl's. I believe the speakers need to be shipped and sold by Amazon like these ELACs were:

What are the other speakers you are auditioning out of curiosity? And is this primarily for music or home theater use?

Oh man, you had to ask lol. I have a list of speakers a mile long. I'm considering, some Internet Direct (like the RSL CG5/CG25, which is free shipping both ways) and some at local showrooms (like the B&W 705 S2, and Totem Acoustics and I've already listened to a few of them), but the ones I'm thinking of trying out from Amazon are the NHT C-3, The Q Acoustics Concept 40, and the Klipsch RP-600M, all with matching centers. The Concept 40s are shipped and sold by Q Acoustics though Amazon but they've assured me that returning them would not be a problem. I also want to give the GoldenEar Triton Seven and the Fyne Audio F501s a listen, but I can't figure out how to get my hands on a pair of them.
