    Re: My new Atria coming.

    Congrats. I wonder is this Atria or Atria II?

    Oh. I did not know that Atria II was coming. I feel a little angry, that my distributor did not warn me about it.

    He should. Distributors usually get this kind of info a few weeks in advance. I would be pissed myself as well.

    Re: My new Atria coming.

    In case you did not know and he did not tell, your dealer's/ distributor's approach might a bit unethical. It might be that he just offloaded an old model to make room for the new one.

    It of course depends on what kind of deal you got. In case you got a sweet end-of-model-cycle deal, then I think it is absolutely fine.

    Re: My new Atria coming.

    The store that sold it to me, I did not have any and the importer did not either. They had to be ordered from Rockport USA. I got the normal discount, not a special discount at the end of the cycle.

    Sorry to hear Francisco, very unfortunate.

    Good news however is, it is still a great speaker. So forget about the product cycles and enjoy your new toys. A new model does not make the previous one bad.

    "More efficient than its predecessor thanks to a new tweeter waveguide—itself trickled down from the top of the line, and intended to create a more uniform dispersion pattern and allow for better driver integration—the speaker has also been re-voiced. "It sounds radically different,"

    I have to agree with Mike, I personally wouldn´t let it stand. Of course radically different doesn´t necessarily mean better but spending that amount of money (the Atrias are probably a lot more expensive in Spain) I would have liked to be given the choice to decide for myself. Who is this dealer Francisco?

    Re: My new Atria coming.

    I sincerely believe that the store that sold it to me (Qualitas Audio de Sevilla) did not know. I do not know if the importer for Portugal and Spain (Ultimate Audio of Lisbon). But if that were so, I think Rockport should have told the importer that in only 30 days there would be a new model on the market.
