This 'toon was partially inspired by an incident many years ago. Back in the day, mfg's used foamed grills, and my floor standing box speakers had ribbed foam on them. I walked into the living room where I found my cat, with surgical precision, slicing and pealing the grills off one of the speaker boxes. After a few choice words (understatement of the century), the cat got the idea I wasn't pleased with its action. That exchange didn't cause a behavioral shift what-so-ever.
To be honest, let me say that in many respects the Isis were the best speakers I’d ever had at home. For example, I’d never heard such a good soundstage. The speakers offer outstanding holography, showing a fully credible soundstage.
