Excellent review, Dennis. Thank you for bringing the A2 system to life for us. I got to listen to them for an hour on the 4th at Dennis's place, and can only offer a hearty Amen to everything Dennis has said.

Out of curiosity, is anyone at HTS getting a pair of A5rx-c for review soon? I know they were on the docket to be reviewed when they were released this past spring, but I also see that Chane is (already) out of stock on them. I'd be quite interested to read about how they compare to the A2, since the A5 is a three-way speaker. Also I'm interested to find out what sonic differences there are compared to the original A5.
We have been asking Jon Lane for a crack at the new A5 for awhile now. He has had the wonderful fortune of having such high demand for them that he has been unable to hold back a pair for us yet (which of you customers would have accepted a "Sorry, all out" for our sake?:rolleyesno:). We would never wish for anything less than that for him, but will continue to hope he finds a way to send us a pair before too long for review.
I will throw in my 2¢ worth on break-in.

My own experience has been that new speakers go through so many adjustments, re-positionings, experiments with EQ or room correction, playing with room treatment, maybe trying a different amp, re-configuring other parts of the system... IOW, so many variables while deciding how to best use them and assess them, that I would have no way of isolating a subtle change and calling it break-in. I can't help but wonder if this might apply to most listeners.

On the other hand, I have learned to trust Dennis's ears more than just about anyone else's I know, so if he says they took awhile to break in......:huh:
