Have you auditioned the Trident HG3s yet?

I blogged about the Trident HG3 Studio Monitors a few years ago when they were first brought to the market and were not yet readily available. They were designed by acclaimed designers Harvey Gerst and Russ Allee. I like the design and I'm really curious as to how they sound. I hope to audition them soon. In the meantime, please leave me a comment if you've heard the HG3s.

Here's an introductory video from Full Compass Audio on the HG3:

and here's another video by renowned producer/arranger/engineer Ted Perlman who gives his feedback on the HG3s:
