Misos went back to the dealer and I brought home Majik 140s. A slightly smaller and (to me) equally handsome speaker that shares the same mid woofer and 2K array with the misos. The 140s have a rear ported woofer spec'd down to 55 Hz whereas the misos isobaric bass unit goes to 27 Hz. Equal sensitivity.
The other notable physical difference is that the black dish behind the 2K array is shallow on the 140s while the misos have a deeper, downward shaped horn behind the 2K. This dish provides a notable difference in the overall tonal balance of the two speakers; the 140s having more forward vocals and cymbals, a more prominent shine to strings, better timbre, and a bit better imaging and wider soundstage. The downside being that the 140s are more revealing of the shortcomings of the 2K; those being some occasional distortion, more sibilance, and less overall refinement. Cymbals have more of a sizzle sound on the 140s versus the polished but recessed presentation of the misos. Taking those compromises into account I prefer the 2K on the 140s.
Both speakers share a similar and welcomed distinction to kick drum which I find adds to the musicality of my rock music listening. Interesting to compare bass response. Misos solid, tight, deep, accurate and powerful at any volume. You might think the 140s can't compete but they are surprisingly respectable. Their bass (albeit not as deep) is balanced at any volume. Controlled, but perhaps somewhat woody, wooly. I listened for a day to the 140s with their standard plinth then installed the upgraded heavy weight aluminum plinths ($600). Tighter, more focused and tuneful bass, possibly less sibilance, and I wouldn't want to go back to the standard plinths.
I like what the 140s are doing in my room and they seem a better fit versus the misos. Low volume listening is very satisfying and the fatigue factor is much reduced. I have them just nine inches from the front wall, the minimum recommended, whereas the misos had to be placed farther into the room to manage their bass. The musicality is very good with the 140s though I'd give them 9/10 versus a 10/10 for the misos. I think the control and depth of the isobarik bass explains that difference.
More listening to come.
