Let's bring back this thread.
Oddly enough the most popular and advertised Reference 3A speaker is the Grand Veena. There are few opinions and reviews on AVSForum with respect to these speakers.
From my personal experience, I had the opportunity to listen to these with a wide selection of music in a dedicated audio room and was completely floored. Granted, I'm a young man of 25 years who has very little experience with respect to listening to audiophile equipment. But I didn't need to listen to other equipment to be completely and utterly floored by what I was hearing, no, experiencing.
I believe these speakers retail for about $8000 dollars. When I heard the Grand Veenas, they were in a dedicated listening room hooked up to McIntosh MC2301 300watt tube monoblock amplifiers (flagship McIntosh amps) and a Perfect Wave DAC.
Female acoustics were real, I don't know how else to put it. I listened to a Patricia Barber acoustic album and could swear she was in the room singing. Piano and bass was ultra realistic as well. Forgive me, I'm not a writer and cannot accurately convey the experience I had listening to these speakers, but they pushed the limits of what I thought was possible with a stereo system.
I'd like to hear anyone's impression of who's heard them before (especially if they are interested in selling)
