Looks like you have the one.r now. How much of an improvement did you notice over the 2+? I realize that there is more lower end base but I am wonder if the upper mid is push out a little more in the one.r?

Yeah, they're awesome.

They are more everything. The ribbons are much better, the depth and punch of the subs are tight and fast with no slop, the mids are clean.

The 2+'s are in my office and perfect (read overkill) for that space, the One.R's in my mixed living/theater area filled that spot nicely.

Great, thankyou…I have access to both the 2+ are a better deal. I spent time listening to the one.r. And really liked them so I will go that route. I was thinking the ribbon would be the same, so good t hear that you can tell a difference. I have always been a fan of 6 inch drivers so going with the 2+ was hard to swallow with 4 inch. The one. R has 5 inch so I feel better about taking it on. I like a pronounced kick drum.

Good to know it’s better all around from someone that has both pair.

I had the 2+ for a couple years. I still have them, they are in the boxes and I'll sell them when I get around to it.
I loved them, but with hard rock & metal especially, they seemed to just struggle a small bit in the midrange....those frequencies with distorted rhythm guitars? Mind you, much better at it than most but I just felt it could have a beefier driver to clear that up a bit.
Everything else was so nice though. And I'll note not everyone is incredibly picky about that frequency range but I always tend to lock onto it in my mind when I'm listening and it annoys me when no matter what I do the speaker just doesn't produce it in a way that isn't.....'fatiguing'. Apologies if my description isn't using 'audiophile' diction. I listen to a huge variety of stuff but this is an area I've found loads of speakers to be lacking.
So I auditioned the 1R and the Reference and the 1R took care of most of what I thought was lacking. I was totally set to buy those cause $$ is always a reality...y'know, buy this or buy a trip. The thing that made me go for the Reference was that doing an A/B audition back and forth and back and forth and the thing was, no matter what I listened to, the 1R sounded great and handled that midrange nicely, but the Reference truly took it to another level, and I really could feel like the performer was in the room. I know I know it sounds cliche, but it's one of the few that pulled off both those criteria for me.

Anyways, the 2+ kept me happy while I ran them....I'm sure the vast majority of people wouldn't feel the need/desire to pay for the gains beyond that level in the lineup.
Upstairs: SuperCinema 3 (SVS SB-2000 though), Denon AVR E-400
Downstairs: Triton 2+, SCXXL, MPX's on the sides, HTR's up top, rears ?? Marantz SR7010, PB-2000

This is useful information as I am a rock fan. I did get the reference center. I will push on for the one.r…I think it’s hard for 4.5 mids in the T2+ to push out out the kick drum like I like. I listen to Martin Logan motion and they are a bit shouty compared to the the goldenear.
