Now there was no speaker system 10k or under which could out play them
and few which came close . Considering the ease with which they can navigate any and all genres of music and their uncanny ability to bring out the best of the music in any environment the E-3 mk II certainly are the speaker to beat.
As Spencer Holbert observed:
"One of the big issues with some speakers is that they sound great only under ideal conditions. Some speakers are so picky that they require entire rooms to be built for them to truly come alive. While we would all love to have acoustic engineers design our listening rooms, very few of us will ever have that opportunity. What I love about the Endeavor E-3s is that they have sounded superb every time I’ve heard them: in my home and at the recent Chicago AXPONA and T.H.E. Show Newport. And you don’t need to take my word for it, just look at show reports since Rocky Mountain 2013 and you’ll find universal acclaim. This is due to the E-3s’ ability to function universally, almost as if they were declaring to the room that it won’t stand in their way. Not that I’m saying the E-3s are perfect, but they have a natural way of blending into their environment and letting the music take over."

Voicing Information: The E-3MkII can be seen to be an extremely accurate monitor-type of system, but was carefully voiced to sound like a musical instrument rather than a “sterile” facsimile. The bass range is extremely potent, yet so quick as to not overload your listening room. The depth, image focus and dimensionality are top-class.
