    Hi Bob,

    Iíve always like Kharma. Iíve heard many. Not great representation in America, but nice speakers. Beautiful fit and finish. Musical.

    Mike, they are extremely beautiful speakers. Very musical, does not sound analytical, more of a rosy presentation. Partners well with tube gear. I listened to the S7S driven by VAC 200IQ- very memorable performance and they do low end really well. The S7S is about the price of the Magico S1 Mk2.

    I had two Kharmas before in the old series. Overpriced in my opinion.

    Kharma Elegance S7S

    The dB7 and 9ís are their sweet spot. Once you set up right they can be game end speakers. Beautiful mid range and great bass too.

    My friendís dB9 set up. Sound wonderful

    Gorgeous setup. I got to agree the DB7/DB9 are in the sweet spot.
