I listen Avantgard trio many times,In Italian show,in Munich,in Italian shop,in one private system,
for me is one of the worst speaker,always found a terrible sound,confused,innatural,hard,and not well balanced

Hahahahahaha. Gian, I think you failed the audition to write for the dcs-wilson-phile and the analytical sound.

Do you remember what amps were used? Did any amps make them sound even more terrible, confused, hard, unnatural and unbalanced?

I too have not really heard the Trio sound like a top loudspeaker, even though I have now heard it many many times. I actually like the Duo Omega better (with Audiopax or Thomas Mayer amps they sounded very good). Even though the Trio does impressive dynamics I didn't find tonal balance natural and image size and soundstage are unnatural as well.
