Thank you Jon and The Audio Insider for this great speaker package. Like has been said who ever wins this is going to need to have an AED nearby to revive his/her heart after the announcement :)

Awesome! Thanks to The Audio Insider. I have been tempted to try a pair of the A1b for my bedroom and will likely do so as soon as we start the remodel for that room.

Thanks all.

Let me add that we're working on adding new Arx content for the TAI site. We hope to have this installed by the weekend. We've also contracted three reviews and are considering a fourth.

One of the more challenging aspects to Arx has been overcoming the self-imposed limitations of furnishing a technologically important but inexpensive product in a plain brown wrapper against a tiny promotions budget and some rather crushing margins. Arx is therefore a guerilla-style effort to experiment in high value and sound quality without spending an extra dime on anything that doesn't relate to both.

In other words, you almost have to know what this stuff is to 'get it', even though with its pricing and with the lack of flashy cosmetics, Arx tends to be compared to the wave of cheap big brand product cropping up all over the place here in our Great Recession.

At any rate, we'll have that new content in place ASAP and we'll continue to enjoy hearing user feedback, which I have to say has been the most consistent TAI has experienced yet. Lots of you are having fun with this stuff and among all of us enthusiasts that's always confirming.

Thanks John, glad the Audio Insider was able to get inside on this give away. Can't wait to give a review, uh...that's of course, if I am lucky enough to win!!! I tell you, this is the best give away I've seen, and it just keeps on getting better!
