    Sounds like these are better than the S5 MK II. Too bad you canít get them in different colors like the S series.

    I could live with the A-chassis look, but the cf on my M3's is a look that can't be beaten. The A5 price is very reasonable for the level of performance it brings to the party.

    Bud, not better than S5 Mk2. I would say the S series still has some nice advantages with cabinet shape/construction, color options, etc.

    However, these new A5ís would eclipse the Q3/5 for me. They have that S/M DNA and performance.

    That being said, they are still not close to any of the M speakers (and thatís a good thing - phew!)

    Frankly, unless your room was really small, I couldnít see anyone picking an S1 over an A5. S3 because a tougher choice: cabinet on S3 is better, color options, etc.

    But this A5 is scary good. At ~$20K, very hard to beat IMO.

    Iím breaking them in with the Boulder 2160/1110 combo and the MSB Discrete DAC.
