    Congrats! I also like the grey horns.

    A friend of mine recently got some older AG Unos I believe... the bass cabinets are really bad, like they subcontracted them out to Bose. The new Duo Mezzo bass cabinets are SO MUCH better... the horn flare is for looks, but it works... they look nice too.

    A most tasteful colour choice marslo these may well prove to be the optimal Size/Efficacy/WAF model, before heading off to Trios and base horns.

    Hello Mariusz,
    Hope you're well.

    AG linked an article to My-Hiend re. XDs in Asia. Interestingly Jerome Andre is now with AG in Asia. I feel part of the gang too.

    How are the new settings working out for you? Pictures, comments and insights please. i.e.. Just how much better are they?

    Hi Blue58,

    Well, Jerome Andre with AG in Asia, interesting, thank you for the news.

    I am in touch with Bruno Ginard from Vermeer Audio, the idea of upgrading La Fontaine is still to be considered.

    Last few days I played with La Fontaine because my Big 7 have been upgraded by Lukasz ( new clock in amanero board ), I also ordered EML 45 Anniversary, just received today the DAC, will listen tonight.

    As far as settings of XD are concerned , I downloaded the software from AG website and spent a few hours to check how it works.
    In the beginning I was disapointed with the default AG settings , also those by Eter Audio were not perfect to my ears.
    Finally , I modified the latter and the speakers started to sing . When they do , it's something, bass is much better controlled, has authority and punch. The goal is to integrate it with the room and midrange . When you achieve that, they are much better than Omega imho.
    Long story short, I am very pleased but the journey to the nirvana only begun.
    I am in touch also with the guy from AG in Germany , he is of polish origin and very helpful to me.

    Here are my best settings up to day :
