    Hi from Seattle

    All

    I wanted to say Hi and join the forum, though I have been lurking for a couple of weeks. Partly thanks to the latter, I ended up purchasing a pair of Avantgarde Duo XDs, which should be here in the next few days! My previous speakers were mostly Maggies (3.6R->3.7->20.1->20.7) powered by a similar progression of Pass Labs amps (X250->XA60.5->XA100.5->XA160.5). I'm now excited about exploring the high efficiency Horn speaker world with different types of amplifiers. Rest of my gear is fairly simple with an old Auralic Aries driving Mscaler/Dave connected directly to my amps.

    Looking forward to continuing to learn from the extremely knowledgeable forum members here!

    Thanks for the welcome, all. This is certainly quite a change in the type of speakers for sure and sound as well :-)

    Re: Hi from Seattle

    As I’ve tried rotating in other speakers, nothing else compares to my Avantgarde Duo. Mike was right. It’ll take a heck of lot more expensive pair to best my horns. Especially a lot of my listening is late low level and moderate volume. These are perfect.

    Re: Hi from Seattle

    Nice another Seattle audiophile :-) BTW, I was seriously considering Alexia 2 (the Seattle Definitive Audio has two pairs in clearance) before dramatically changing my direction. Even the Wilsons would have been quite a change from my planars though :-)

    Alexia 2’s on clearance? Are they dropping the line? New model coming?

    Re: Hi from Seattle

    Sorry, I should have clarified (and not start any accidental rumors) :-) It's in their clearance section, but I think they are just trade-ins from customers who were upgrading to larger models.
