the only thing i havent changed
I purchased my Aerius speakers new in 1994. At that stage I was using Naim amplification and an Arcam CD player. Great sound. Since that time Ive changed sources and amplification many times over and my most recent set up was Audio Research pre and power with an Ayon cd and Oracle/SME/Dynavector for sources. At no stage have I felt that the Aerius apekers have reached their full potential, they are clean , transparent, dynamic, balanced with an excellent soundstage and I must say more than adequate bass in my listening room. Recently I swapped the ARC valve power amp for a Pass Labs X250.5 and wow did this make a huge difference again, yet the Aerius took it all in its stride. Like a well worn and loved pair of bedroom slippers these speakers continue to shine 20 years after I frist bought them. I had the opportunity to demo a pair of Summits and whilst they do sound different I dont necessarily think they sound better, ML certainly hit the spot with these beauties.
