I can jump in (The pic Harvestor posted that wasn't his happens to be mine I have listened to/restored many many sets of speakers, and the Model I's are the ones that have stayed in my main rig these last few years. They displaced my Klipsch collection, which was rotating sets of Chorus I's. Chorus II's and Forte II's. The I's make great bass, and the top firing drivers really make for a wide soundstage. The front firing tweeter helps them image, even with the odd top mounted drivers. I'm working on procuring another set for my wife, as they are her favorite set out of the many available to her, and she wants them for her system. Good stuff.
