    T+A Criterion S2200 CTL Speakers









    Starting at $11,300/pair.

    A giant killer. T+A started as a speaker manufacturer. These are transmission line speakers.

    T+A Criterion S2200 CTL Speakers

    Thatís a looker for sure. Itíll undoubtedly be compared against A3.

    BTW, how do you get your Discrete to display blue font?

    Love the rack too.

    I wonít start that. . People have to come and hear them. Very impressive. Very cohesive. Smooth as silk tweeter. Iíve always liked a good transmission line speaker.

    Re: T+A Criterion S2200 CTL Speakers

    Mike, do these speakers sound like the T+A Solitaire 1000/2000. Different design, but have you heard the 1000/2000 Solitaires?
    T+A 3000 Series into Magico A3. TW Acoustic Phono.
