We had a day of mourning to give it a good send off. Such an amazing processor. Still love it, but with this job I have to stay near the bleeding edge to test out new stuff so its time had come.

Thank you
Thanks. I did a few weeks of A/B'ing the Parasound amps and the Emotiva amps and couldn't find any reason to keep the Parasounds over what I was getting with the XPRs. I hear a lot of complaining about Emotiva's amps but I find them quite musical and dynamic and I have zero regrets. The Parasounds are fantastic amps though.

I am back to using the Focus. The Aeris sounds tremendous but with all the testing I do I didn't want a speaker that requires a DSP processor in line with it. Hard to do testing of audio processors and room correction solutions when you have another DSP engine and A to D/D to A stage in line. The engineer in me starts getting too twitchy. Plus I think the Aeris was a bit much for my room. I do miss the Aeris though, such a gorgeous speaker and amazing performance.

Kris, don't feel bad; you know that you will have a new Anthem down the road with all the bells and whistles.

I prefer my music to be musical and my solid state amps to amplify.

And this statement effectively contradicts Kris' in what manner?

As a professional musician (stage & studio) I can say there are a whole lot of choices to reproduce sound- some more accurately than others. Some far more accurately. For Kris to say he's not only happy with the XPR-1 but also stated that he doesn't feel he's given up anything in regards to replacing his Parasounds with them, speaks quite plainly.

No snobbery required.
