    The 96's and the Leben CS-600 are a fantastic pairing!!! It's one of the setups here that I really enjoy together.

    I just picked up a pair of the V2+'s. They are tiny, beautifully finished, image like crazy and sound absolutely wonderful.

    Also my favorite all-time small monitors (and I've had many) are the Trenner & Friedl Art's. They are made in Austria, are stunningly beautiful (mine are zebra wood with white Corian baffles) and would sound sublime with your Triode's. Here is a link to a recent review:

    I also have the Lawrence Audio Violin's which sound good and look amazing.

    What's their frequency range? I could not find a clear statement anywhere...

    [QUOTE=Kuoppis;185332]What's their frequency range? I could not find a clear statement anywhere...
    From a dealer'/ site. Mine are the + version:
    The Audience proprietary A3-S driver, although just 3 inches in diameter, delivers extremely flat frequency response from 50Hz to 22kHz (depending on room placement), eliminating the need for a separate woofer, midrange driver, tweeter, and crossover network. As a result the inherent problems of integrating multiple sonically dissimilar drivers and the accompanying phase distortions, loss of resolution and transient response degradation of a crossover network are completely avoided. The dual side-mounted passive radiators augment the output of the A-3S2-16 drivers and enable the 1+1 V2 to deliver outstanding presence and dynamic contrast.
    The A3S2-16 driver incorporates numerous engineering refinements such as a large patented neodymium-magnet motor structure and voice coil that moves with a highly linear excursion of 12mm; an exclusive titanium alloy cone material with a curvilinear shape; a concave dust cap specially designed to control high-frequency cone breakup and provide optimum dispersion; a unique "S"-shaped surround that allows the driver to behave more like an ideal pistonic radiator, and many additional enhancements.
    The 1+1 V2 also utilizes Audience's unique SSIT SweetSpace TM Imaging Technology that provides an expanded listening area rather than the usual single listener sweet spot.
    The + Version

    The 1+1-V2+'s available + upgrade provides yet another degree of sonic refinement. The 1+1-V2+ adds beautiful solder-less Tellurium binding posts and Audience premium Au24 internal wiring. The + kit option adds yet another layer of refinement, particularly evident by the smoothness, improved timbre and tonal richness.

    Re: What's your favorite small or bookshelf speaker?

    Yes, thank you - I saw that too. That is however referring just to the A3-S driver, and with restrictions.

    I was looking for the verified freq. range for the V2+'s - both drivers, built into the loudspeaker and either as a statement from the manufacturer or measured by a credible and independent source.

    Trenner & Friedl monitor - tiny, but sounded great on Viva electronics last Newport show
    Reference 3a De Capos
    Vapor Cirrus - want to hear them and they are pretty efficient

    I like Dyns, but wouldn't think them to be a good match with your Tri amps.

    Jonanthan,

    A good friend of mine has the MicroOne's and he just loves them.
    Do you see them matching well with Joe's Triode 845M?
    I assumed they needed a fair amount of power.

    Regards.
