I have no experience with them, but I was speaking with a guy at a local shop who sells both ID and HAT and he said he prefers at any level to Hertz or ID. But that is him, and this is us lol.

I like Morel over HAT's products, So are you speaking for everyone?
or for some of those guys that read & post which have never heard HAT product?
or are you saying that HAT is the best because of all comps they win?

I've heard many different types of speakers, HAT, Morel, Image Dynamics, Hertz, Focal, etc. I prefer the HAT products over any others that I have heard, I have made a believer out of many people local as well. I own the Imagines right now and for the price they can't be beat.

As you can see in my Build Log, I have some work to do first! Full amp overhaul, and then some.

Give me 2 weeks, and it may happen.

If my CK's win, I'll be angry with you lol.

For the price, I'm happy with my CK6's. The mid is versatile and worth while. Might try the Scanspeak Discovery for a quick minute instead of the Imagines after reading this.

Bn'R, what is it that you don't like about them? I was led to believe that their tonal quality and signal reproduction was great in the >$400 range.

Haven't auditioned them yet, myself, so I can't judge.
