Oh yes, please do go back. I'm very interested to hear your opinion of how they compare.I really wanted to hear the Dali Ikons on this trip, which they had. But I ran out of time, I had to get on the road to beat traffic and had I stayed it would have been a rushed listen. I may have to take a second trip to compare Dali with Totem:bigsmile:.
How'd you know? :scratchhead:Just a wild guess, but do you like the Ikon series, Naut?
Yeah, there's more. Ascend Sierra's, Thiel CS1.6, I also want to hear some Dali Helicon's, NHT classic fours, and Salk Song-Towers. I am having a very hard time finding somewhere to hear the Revel Concerta F-12's and anything from Quad...Wow, great write-up!
Still not sure, eh? Is there anything left on your audition list?
I did, and I think they are a very good sounding speaker, though not right for me.Did you ever hear the Vandersteens?
If that was my list, the Revels would get the top honors.So far:
Axioms are on my not-so-short list,
along with Paradigm Studio series,
B&W 683's & CM7's,
Onix rpcket RS850,
Monitor Audio Silver RS-6/8,
and the SVS MTS-01...
Now vandersteen joins that group.
Any arguments for or against, and/or further additions to that list are welcome.
I didn't care for the D-10, they were lacking in midrange and bass, but the D-14's I did like. I just thought that they were lacking in the highs, but I also stated that was most likely because I listened to them directly after hearing a set of speakers with a ribbon tweeter for the first time. I actually want to listen to the ERA D-14's again, but this time with fresh ears.While I haven't heard the new ERA D-10 and D-14, I'm surprised you didn't like them.
Thanks KonkyBy the way, you do a good job of being quite concise in your reviews...keep on truckin'; you'll find something you absolutely love.
I am surprised the Revels are so hard to find too, especially in such a huge city. I will keep an eye out for used Aerial's BTW I listened to my first 3K speakers yesterday...I'm really surprised you're having so much trouble finding Revels. Oh, speaking fo the continuously rising pricing; when you get to the 3K level, you should be able to find a really nice used pair of Aerial Acoustics 10Ts (Audiogon)...which while in production (trust me they're still a very very very good speaker) were >8K a pair with Sound Anchors.
Thanks Jacen, Great timing! :T while you were posting the dealers I was organizing my chicken scratch notes and trying to put together some cohesive thoughts on a few Dynaudio's I listened to yesterday...Excellent write-up! Thank you for sharing your experiences. I love hearing about peoples auditions.
I almost hope you never find "The One" so we can can continue to get these great writeups.
They are the ones I want to hear most, but am having the hardest time finding... isn't that always the case though.If that was my list, the Revels would get the top honors.
Is that Vienna Acoustic??? I heard the Bach's but liked the Monitors better, Unfortunately I don't know much about their other offerings...Might also add VA.
