This is a bit of an odd question, but any thoughts on whether there is a resale market for 6T boxes? I know from my previous experience looking for a pair of used 6Ts that they are basically impossible to ship safely without the boxes, and getting a new set from Aerial is quite costly. Anyone had any luck selling their Aerial boxes to help someone else looking for a used pair out of state join the Aerial club?

There is a set of LR5's and a CC5 on eBay right now. Very tempting... But he doesn't have the stands for the LR5s and the grills need to be repaired. very tempting indeed.

How does the 5T compare to Focal Electra 1008 II and B&W 805 D3 ?

Hi folks

Has anyone compared the (older) Model 9's to the 7T's? I'm in the market for some new speakers for my 2 channel rig, and am actively looking at these two. Curious if the 7T is a big leap forward or not.

Upgrading from some PSB Synchrony One's FWIW. Also, I've been wondering if my Ayre AX7E (60w/8ohm) is enough for these, although with their sensitivity I think it should be OK.

The older models really need power to get the most out of them. 9's need space to control the bass and around 200-250 wpc to get the most out of them. The new T lineup is easier to drive but 60 wpc is at the low end of the scale for the new series. Good match ups for 9's are McIntosh and Theta Amps.

I don't know if anyone in this group has heard all 3. Might be best to read reviews.

I heard the 9's some years back, never side by side with the 7T's so it would be hard to say. If you email Aerial and tell them what amp you have they will tell you if it is adequate. I drive my 7T's with a Mcintosh MC 252, very good synergy.

I f you get ahold of Steve Bruzonsky, I am sure he will be abe to tell you and be able to answer almost any/everything you would like to know about these speakers. He went from the model 9's the new 7T's and seems to love them! Do a search for him and i am sure he will help!
