    Not so tough, unless you have some serious high freq. hearing loss (I am kidding, but not really).

    As to your question, one speaker has a gorgeous smooth tweeter. The other two will rip your ear off.


    I heard the 3F, and that was *definitely* my experience. Measurements show the tipped-up high end.

    The first time I listened to the Persona’s at a show I could not get out of the room fast enough! Too bright for my personal preference. I did experience them on a different occasion and the presentation was better, but still not the balance I desire.

    I'm not sure the model I heard at Axpona, they were excellent. They certainly have the beautiful Tidal traits in sound character.

    If I were a wealthy man I'd buy a Tidal system just to sit and listen to piano.

    Haven't heard the Personas, but when I was speaker hunting back in 2011 I did check out the Paradigm S8s. Way too tipped up for me.

    That same day I heard the Salon 2s, and soon afterward pounced when a barely used pair showed up for less than half price. They've been here ever since.
