There's a bit of resonant activity around 4 or 5 Khz and also 18 Khz in the CSD plot.

Step response is spot on; see my comments on the Wilson audio test; https://www.stereophile.com/content/wilson-audio-specialties-alexx-loudspeaker#comment-576416

Other stuff looks pretty good; but then for $62K it should be.
