I have just got a pair of 2+. They have only been playing for around 30 hours and the now sound better than out of the box.
But there are still way to bright / agressiv in the midrange.

Voices are missing the body. A classic album like Harvest Moon with Neil Young sounds like tortur. I have many others albums that sounds really bad. And that's a shame because I love the music.

It's a real shame, because the stereo images is huge and the bass is VERY good. But voices had to sound natural before anything else.

Take Norah Jones here voice should sound like dripping honey.

Anybody else having the same experience with the 2+ ?

There's something wrong with your system or setup, ask your selling dealer to help you troubleshoot.

Martin:
Dripping honing? Cool Whip & Cherry pie, perhaps?
Tell us a little about your room. Acoustic treatments on the walls? Carpet, hard surface floors, lots of glass? Tell about your system, starting at the wall outlet. What power cords are you using? Speaker wire? Interconnects? Any silver in the system? Describe your equipment.

Post a picture of your room if possible.

Room is a little naked. I am in the process of building some acoustic panels. Basically rockwool in a frame with fabric on.

The room is 4.7m x 5.2m. The celling is very asymmetric. Hope you can see that on the attached photos.

My current speakers are a pair off Danish Dana 980 with Scan-Speak drivers

Sorry for the messy room. Waiting for some furniture and I am in the process of selling my plasma tv.

Hey Martin:
Why aren't the T2'S set up? Have they been broken in for 50-100 hours? That helps a lot.

1) Pull the drapes closed on the left cluster of windows.
2) The window behind the right speaker needs to be addressed (pleated shade etc.)
3) Is that a hard surface floor? Put an area rug on it, like an oriental.
4) Can the speakers be pulled out into the room more, away from the front wall? They are so close to the tv screen, which can cause brightness.
5) Experiment with your homemade acoustic panels, especially the first reflection piont on the side walls
