I've been waiting for this review for a while. I had no doubt that the speakers would sound different, and also guessed that they would sound "better". Higher quality components (and the Ninja does use very high quality components) will always make a difference. As many said, that part of the equation comes down to cost, and how much you are willing to pay for incremental improvements.
What I am REALLY interested in however is how much the adjusted crossover point contributed to making the speaker sound "better". Does the Ninja Crossover identify the inductor and capacitor values (should be measured in milli-Henries and micro-Farads, respectively). I'd love for someone to reconstruct the crossover using cheapo Radio Shack parts to see if it is the revised crossover setting contributing the biggest part of the perceived improvement.
