There have been two versions of the Slims--the first was more expensive because it used a Revelator woofer and the same tweeter as in the Phil 3. I dropped that as soon as the less expensive RAAL became available. That, and a different woofer dropped the price by $1,000. I think the total run of both versions has been more like 4 years.

I am the proud owner of a couple of Philharmonic Audio Affordable Accuracy Monitors and recently I have been wondering about this: The Twitter on these speakers is off center so, acoustically speaking, Is there any difference between placing the speakers with the twitters towards the center to placing them with the twitters towards the outside?

Since the tweeters are offset relative to the woofer, they will measure differently off axis to the left and to the right, since the distances to the sides of the baffle will be different, and that will generate different diffraction peaks and dips to the left vs. the right. Sometimes the left and right patterns are just different, and it's hard to say which is better. But with the AA's, the response is smoothest to the side with the widest baffle distance from the edge to the tweeter. That means that in principle the L and R speaker should be positioned so that the tweeters are furthest apart from each other. That's contrary to the conventional wisdom that calls for the opposite positioning. Will the speakers really sound smoother and image better with my recommended setup? Probably not.
