    What are some dymanic driver/non-horn speakers that have that "jump" factor?

    Hello,

    I guess I'm curious to see to what brands have Horn like life/jump/presence but, are your standard dynamic driver speaker.

    Devore Fidelity and Tekton Design were names mentioned to me but, wanted to ask around to see if there are others.

    Thanks. Ok so, another one for you.

    Does one exist that has the resolution/transparency of a Electrostatic? I would assume it would be the Vivid?

    I wasn't expecting Magico to be named. But, then again I've never heard any M Series speaker.

    Only Q and S models.
