No, not a great idea . I would dig up the quotes where you said there's no way you would upgrade to the 215's...

That's a great idea! The amount of space needed would be un-obtainable where I live probably. There would have to be no neighboring communities for at least a half a mile in every direction. Those Jericho's REALLY throw the sound.

I am impressed that the thread owner finds he Danleys to sound better than Trio Horns. I have Trios that I purchased recently at a great price new and they sound exceptionally good.

Forum members that have provided negative reviews of the Trio's simply haven't heard them setup right or something... they are among the most amazing speakers I have ever heard. I suspect one reason folks don't like them is that they are so transparent that you are apt to turn the volume up too high. Once you turn them up, you can unknowingly but easily hit the ear's threshold of pain during transients. This is likely to be interpreted as "harshness".

I certainly might like the synergy horns "better" than trios but I would be shocked if they were dramatically better. I LOVE the sound of the trios coupled with a perfectly room optimized DIY 15" x 8 driver subwoofer (4 room corners setup) powered by 10000 watts. My room is diffusion controlled and reasonably bass trapped.

I am planning on buying a Danley SM96 speaker to sit on the floor beneath my theater screen (unfortunately I don't have room behind my screen). I plan on using it as a center between the Avantgarde Trios. The "Avantgarde" Solo center channel that I have for home theater isn't bad but I would like a wider controlled dispersion pattern for my particular room.

Any thoughts on the SM96 and its use with Avantgarde's? I suspect only this thread owner would know...

Blazar!

My favorite horns for 2-ch, much more than the Trios, are the Tune Audio Anima from Greece, as well as a horn made in Berlin, which was made with JBL for midrange adn Tweeter and 18 inch Allnico woofers. The Animas are there for demos in other countries. Haven't heard the Danleys, so if there is anyone in the UK or Western Europe, please let me know
