    My room is 14'x23'x10' and the Aviors blend in smoothly. I suspect the Atrias would work better in a smaller room. Your room dimensions may be better suited to the Aviors, just my 2 cents

    Spoke to Andy about this, he says not in the immediate future. Atleast 5 years.

    Atria II was just introduced at CES. Perhaps Avior next?

    Hi,

    I read that too when I was following the stereophile coverage of CES 2017. In my view, high likelihood of Avior II as essentially they are cut from the same cloth.
    The big question for me is whether the new waveguide can be retrofitted and that too without having to cart it all the way back to Maine. Looks unlikely again given that it may not be such a simple job owing to crossover changes that may be warranted to adjust for the increase in efficiency!

    Let's wait and see.....unless someone here already knows what's afoot.

    Cheers

    Imho for sure try Echole. Echole Signature is already amazing. Of course Omnia and the more recent Echole Limited Edition are top of the food chain. Look at all the sound of the show Rockport has accumulated in recent years using Echole. At the last Munich show with the Integrated Absolare amo, the Altair 2 was wired with Echole Omnia on the inside (from factory). Actually everyone who has done this (I know 4 people at least) can confirm that the Rockport becomes even better (notice I say even better, because standard Rockports are already amazing).

    Transparent is very good, but not at the same level imo.
