A few nibbles, but everything is still available. This is not a speaker built to a formula based on TS parameters, but one that started life that way and has been refined by lots of listening and experimenting, rebuilding and so on until it got to where it is today.

This is in my dedicated listening room — Not only did the soundstage explode in all three directions, these little speakers distinctively revealed the differences in amplification handily.
Like you I listen to a lot of acoustic jazz from the 50s on and I don’t feel as any substantial part of the spectrum is MIA per se — meaning that the lowest notes on the upright bass are still very much present, but also have an articulation, tone and musicality that is to love.
