    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks Mike, my plan is to do exactly that: live with a stable configuration for a while before any radical changes. And thanks for the recommendation as well - I will reach out to Gary once enough time has passed with a stable room. Ron: Unfortunately, I don't have too much freedom in...

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks JP, Bruce and Bruce :-) Yeah, it was certainly a tough choice to move on from the Maggies, they were quite amazing, especially for the price! Christoph: interestingly, my main immediate problems are also having to deal with my largish room (38'x24'13.5'), with a somewhat...

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks Ron and Ovemitt. Regarding power, the Auroras seem to be decently matched with a high 28W (for a SET), though time will tell once they're fully broken in and I push them to play large scale orchestral music (which is one my main goals for this system once fully dialed in). Anil

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks Christoph, Jeffrey and Peter. Christoph, those Universums (and their setting) sure look amazing and I would imagine they sound even better, based on your posts! Peter: I know what you mean regarding the Vivas and female vocals. While waiting for my horns to arrive, I tried them (partly...

    Hello from Seattle

    I will do so. I'm a little surprised to hear that the short bass horns are not as impressive (I had also considered those as a possible option for the Trios). One interesting thing with the JL Audios: they have variable phase control, which in theory allows you to better control the group...

    Hello from Seattle

    Yeah, I was a little skeptical and worried about the color, but once they were in the house, even my wife thinks they look great! If only I can somehow hide the Gothams :-) Anil

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks Tom, much appreciated. Jeffrey, here's a quick snapshot right after after I unpacked the horns and Gothams recently :-) I have a lot of work to do before my final configuration (not to mention a pair of amp stands) and I will post better pictures after that. Anil

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks Folsom, Tango and Mike! Tango: thanks for the pointers, I will use the Avantgarde thread to ask some questions and get insights from current owners. Mike: I'm certainly enjoying the clean(er) air, though we're probably getting more rain than we needed to deal with smoke and fire :-)...

    Hello from Seattle

    Thanks, Steve and Kedar! I'm certainly hoping to get a pair of Bass Horns at some point. Anil

    Hello from Seattle

    All I wanted to say hi and introduce myself as I've found myself spending a lot of time recently on this forum. After living with a fairly stable SS/Planar system for almost a decade (mostly consisting of various Magnepan/Pass systems in combination with Berkeley Audio Alpha) I very recently...
