Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Yup, I read them

But I posted this comment before you did! I want to hear for myself, over an extended period. All I've ever owned is box speakers. Circumstances allow me to experiment a bit now. I think I have an acceptable space and amplifier to see what 1.6's can do. I have lots of electronics, but had only one set of half-decent speakers. Because of my listening habits, this required me to set my better gear up in a very restricting space. I think the Maggies qualify as half-decent at this point, so having them allows me to rearrange my stuff in a more purpose-oriented way. For one thing, they made me get off my butt and set up a listening room. I am not in any speaker camp because I just don't have the experience.

And as I mentioned, I want to get some horns too. The Oris is out of my price league. None of my local dealers sell horns, and none of the local dealers I frequent even sell any tube gear - no demand, they say (?). So, if you've tried any horns in the (very preferably) under $2k range, and found them not too bad, I'd be pleased to hear about it. So far, I've found The Horn (Listener mag), the Jericho, and the Heresy. I might be able to hear the Heresy locally. I'd really hate to buy a speaker without well hearing it first, but I might have to. Thanks, and I do appreciate your comments.
