1) I just bought these at a reduced price of $447 (Lb. 275). Are they now a five star speaker at that level?
2) What is meant by "complex rhythms trip them up"? I cannot understand what this translates to in audible terms- anyone have an example?
We usually only give 5 star ratings to products that are strong all-round performers. Even at that price these speakers would stay 4 stars.
In basic terms they didn't get our feet tapping as well as some of the competition, which made them less enjoyable to listen to.
are they Not really good for soul and rock bass?
These have gained a 4 star rating. They're good speakers. It's just that they don't quite handle rhythms with the precision of say, Acoustic Energy's 301s or Q Acoustics' Concept 20s.
I have these speakers,and have pared them with new Yamaha A-S500, Harman Kardon CD 970...they play fantastic. Although i like speakers with more sensitivity like 92db but these ones with their original 90db sound "great"...

The original X 300 was a great power amplifier. This Signature version is clearly better
If you want an affordable 8in tablet then this is worth a look – but there are too many flaws in its performance for us to really recommend it
A striking design with good ideas, but we’d expect far better for the money
