    Re: Jeff Rowland fans? Any current owners here?

    Hi Keith,

    A good friend bought them. I have to say as good as they were on my Avantgarde. I prefer the SIT3. It’s a little more laid back and mid hall effect. I think part of it is my room is a little on the smaller side for my Avantgarde so I’m already a little closer than I probably should be. The SIT3 are perfect from their perspective in my room. I bought a backup SIT3 and sold the SIT1.

    Rowland is superlative gear. I have the 625 S2 plus Corus and PSU. It is basically built by hand, by Jeff. I had the good fortune to spend the day with him at his factory several years ago...a total gentleman. JRDG owners tend to buy and keep long term.

    Re: Jeff Rowland fans? Any current owners here?

    I've owned the JRDG Corus and 625 S2 since 2013. They drive the mids and highs on my Raidho D3's really well. The D3's now produce the mids and highs and a JL Audio F212v2/CR1 crossover produces the lows since early 2019. My audio system now creates fully palpable music from the very low to high frequencies.

    Not only beautifully built gear, but great sounding gear. There's a good reason there aren't many available on Audiogon.
