A pair of Ref 20s in a fine, audiophile-grade system will reveal the following qualities:
Thundering dynamics and lightning-fast transient speed
Sweeter, more natural highs
A near-palpable midrange and overall harmonic structure, resulting in a more natural and relaxed presentation
A beautifully textured low end exceeding even that of the Ref 20’s exemplary authority and control
A deeper, more coherent soundstage
Without a doubt, the Ref 20 is destined to be found at the very heart of any dream audio system.
