I'm trying to match speakers to my Exposure 2010S. After seeing a few rave reviews of the 2010S/Neat Motive 2 system Bluebird music was showing a few years back I'm very interested in checking out some Neats.
Since Neat has been out of the US market for a while, though, it's hard to find much coverage or experience with them. So I'm mostly basing my enthusiasm off of British reviews that tout the "musicality" of the speakers (I'm looking specifically at the Petite SX).
Can someone help me understand what this means? To me, comments like "these speakers just play music" is the same as a sports broadcaster saying "this guy is an athlete." Well... yeah. What kind of attributes does one associate with a particularly musical speaker? Dynamics? Coherence? Would I lose the imaging and refinement that less "musical" speakers might offer?
Eventually I'll get around to just listening to these, but the nearest dealer is 4.5 hours away so I'm trying to do my due diligence beforehand.
BTW, other speakers currently on my shortlist are the Totem Rainmaker, Dynaudio Excite X12 and Focus 160.
