I tested this speaker during a research capain for my new speaker. I wasn't enchanted of him.
I founded the sound unnatural. Mostly because he eats details and it's not my cup of tea when a speaker do so. I liking sounds that are rended good. The control of the bass could be better, he has punch, but just give the greatest parts of it. The mids are... okay I guess. This lack of details is everywhere and it although make this speaker special on this frequencies. The highs are really good. They are more refined than reality, it help when something is recorded agressive, to enjoy the final result. The dynamics are good. You hear clearly that the speakers follow heavy rithm variations without beeing overstressed. The sound lacks to fly away from the speaker, you hear exactly that he's related to them (no 3d like a good speaker can give). Placement are okay, headroom is middleclass.
My opinion :
It's a waste of money. This speaker is not cheap, and it's tipically the sort of "not so defined sound" that I would expect from an entry level speaker. "Spare your money and buy a good speaker".
What is the point of a FR up to 60KHz when CDA resolution is limited to 22k? If a DAC is set to steep roll off filter, then again, it makes this somewhat redundant. I know the argument is that extended responses mean that harmics can be acurately reproduced, even if the fundamental is above the limit of hearing it must mpact on the audible range, but if it aint there in the first place.....

This versatile all-in-one solution has plenty of features to root for, but sound quality isn’t one of them
As exciting and flamboyant as it is, the 2010S2 has too many caveats when it comes to dynamics and cohesiveness for us to recommend it over rivals<
A sharp, exciting picture with essential smarts – and at a terrific price
