I'm not suggesting that the box speaker is a dragon in need of slaying. On the contrary. It was the Magico Q7 and EA MM7 that caused me to think perhaps we have gone as far as we can go; at least at a price and size that has a real world applicability. Both designs benefited from a no holds barred approach. Having said that, Avalon is set to release another SOTA speaker in January. It will be fascinating to see what they have achieved.
