    Rockport Technologies Lyra

    I just ran into knowing there's another line speakers line coming up from Rockport. It sits between Arrakis and Altair price range. Last year, they introduced Cygnus and this year, Lyra. Apparently, some ultra high-end speakers manufacturers are going to aluminum castings race this lately. Would like to read fresh and updated reviews both on Cygnus and Lyra soon.

    Rockport has now added Lyra to their Products Section formally. Interestingly, Altair has now been removed...more to come presumably on Arrakis? Arrakis is basically 2 Altairs, one inverted and placed on top of the other...i wonder if we are going to see 2 Lyras, one placed on top of the other? Probably weigh 1100 lbs each speaker!

    Thanks for the info LL21, it has been a little quiet on the Lyra front since its launch, letīs hope more reviews are on the way or that fellow forum members get a chance to listen to it and share some impressions.

    I think they are selling all they can make...so no reviews until paying clients are satisfied first...my dealer has heard them. A few dealers in the USA now have them on their floors...

    A Rockport dealer in Omaha, Nebraska has them in his home. A friend of mine listened to them there and was extremely impressed.

    I'm sure they are but I still think your Altairs are much better looking. I bet I could sit in your chair without music playing and still enjoy myself with sight alone.
