Currently looking at both of these models and unlikely to audition, seeking user's or non users thoughts. On paper they seem to not have much in common other they are both slim floor standers suitable for med to smallish rooms. http://www.reference3a.com/taksim.html The Taskim has little in the way of a crossover but a single cap on the tweeter allowing for high efficiency suitable for SET amps and SS amplification, they weigh in at 88lbs a piece which was a little surprising considering their overall size. Very accurate and by most accounts great sounding within their category. https://pmc-speakers.com/products/consumer/twenty5/twenty523 A smallish floor stander from the UK that comes with plenty of great reviews [only 33 lbs] and again an over achiever considering its size category, not as efficient and likes some grunt when it comes to the amplification, but whats put in you get. Since giving up a large sound space for a much smaller room and letting go of whats normally referred to as "large speakers" on AK, downsizing and going to non vintage is a bit of a change.
