Any opinions? Source is computer or Rega rp1 into a schiit Gungnir and Lehmann black cube linear respectively. After this wld be a TT upgrade to michell or clearaudio
See my post above. I think the Aria 948's are a fantastic speaker at a great price point. As soon as I hooked up the 1038's I realized how good that Be tweeter is. Vocals became more "real" and cymbal decay just floated away. If you can swing it, I'd go with the 1038's, unless you want to buy my Arias!!

Haha Im a very careful guy so if I were to get the Arias I would opt for a local one since Im a sucker for good support haha! Hmm may I ask what's the difference between 948 and 1038 in terms of bass response because I'm certain that the midrange and highs are definitely better but what about the bass and staging since the 948 is "bigger physically"

I am trying to construct a small stand to angle my rear speakers toward the listening area....

This is for my L/R surround...They are 1008 BE....

Does anyone know the size of the screw that fits in the holes at the bottom of the speaker ?

Thanks for any help...

Shelly

Define "bigger physically"? The 1038's are taller, but less wide and deep. The 1038's also outweigh the 948's by 35lbs each. Staging is much better with the 1038's and the bass is pretty close between the two but the 1038's have a much better defined, less boomy bass. The three woofers of the 1038 have more surface area (I believe) than the two larger woofers of the 948's. Both are great speakers, but the 1038's are the obvious choice if money is taken out of the equation.
