* How long have you been using the product?
It's been 10 years now, I bought them new.

* Which feature do you like the most / the least?

* The most: Their value for money, the audio quality and their overall performance. I used them together with a Pioneer amp for some time, the sound lacked some detail, the highs were a bit blurry. But after hearing them with a Nad T761 amp, everything leveled out, the reproduction is much more linear, the highs are less aggressive, it's really good! I compared them to the B&W Preference 5, and the infinity hold up really well! But I don't think they are in the same category.

* The cons: No dual connection possibility (to split the lows form the rest) for bi-amplification or at least a fiber optic connector.

* Did you try any other models before buying the product?
Hi-fi: B&W Preference 5, B&W DM 603 S2, Technics
PA: Mackie SRM450, JBL 125 and others...

* How would you rate the product's value for money?
Very good, even after 10 years, they are still holding up. I think they are a great option.

* Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? ...
No, I would get a pair of new B&W, but they are not at the same price point, though.
