    I never had the Avantgardes in the new room, which is 21.5' x 18.5' x 8.5'.

    Some background:

    I was the North American Avantgarde distributor from late 1999 until December 2005. My company was Avantgarde-USA.

    In late 2005, Holger Fromme (Avantgarde Acoustic's Managing Director) and I had a bit of a disagreement about US pricing. The eroding dollar vs Euro exchange rate was causing the US prices to continue to rise when no significant change in the product line had appeared since late 1999.

    Although we were continuing to sell product at a satisfactory rate, I was becoming exceedingly uncomfortable with the much higher prices for the same product (which I liked very much - and I liked the folks at Avantgarde Acoustic as well). Anyway, I had an "outside the box" idea that could dramatically drop our North American prices, but it would require a change in how we handled the distribution. Holger wanted to keep things as they were, so I resigned as distributor.

    I sold off my inventory in 2006, and although I tried more than a few loudspeakers, I never really found a speaker that I liked better in all respects than the Avantgardes (when set up properly).

    Then, on a voicing trip in 2010, I voiced a pair of Canterburys, and l fell in love with their musical involvement. I later bought a pair. The Avantgardes simply do some things better (for example, their sheer sense of "liveliness"). But I also love the Tannoys' lifelike reproduction of Tone/Timbre.

    So I wouldn't say that the Tannoys were an upgrade - they just appealed to some things I also like. I could be happy with either.

    Sorry for the long reply - just couldn't think of a short answer re Avantgarde/Tannoy.
    Jim,
    Thanks for the reply. That really helps!

    One more time - IMO.
    Well, here are two photographs of a more modest system, set up properly by Jim Smith. As Jim says, "It plays the room".

    I never saw those speakers before either, but a quick Google image search found them to be Symposium Panorama speakers.

    Re: Awesome system pics (doesn't have to be your own)

    These are some amazing systems, although I only recognize maybe 65% of the gear that's represented. That said, some of these speakers are so completely over the top, I'm not sure I'd want them in my room...and I guarantee you my wife sure wouldn't! They may sound amazing, but you still have to look at them when you walk into the room. This is coming from a guy with 1400 Arrays, so I know a thing or two about weird looking speakers, lol!
