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!

Thanks for the replies all! I also realized that my current amplification isn't up to snuff, so I ended up going in a different direction and getting some active Dynaudio's (XD 600). Maybe some day I'll go back to passive, perhaps the 9T or similar model

My local dealer has the 7T's hooked up to a Plinius preamp and a Plinius 125 Class A amp. Great sound.

We just took possession of our new "downsizing" home. Since both boys are in college now it was hard to justify the expenses of a large home.

Luckily, I have a nice area in the basement to setup my home theater. The only dilemma I am facing is positioning my side-surround speakers. In my last home I was using a pair of stand-mounted Aerial LR3's. Unfortunately, in my new space, it doesn't allow for placing the side speakers on stands due to the room's layout. So, I need to go on-wall or in-wall.

My first thought was to look for a used pair of SR3's, but, I am used to having direct radiating speakers and not sure how the bi pole/dipole design will sound. Also, a good pair of SR3's can be difficult to find.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I might do for my side-surround speakers? Are there any manufacturers that mate well with the Aerials that have an on-wall/in-wall model?

Current Equipment: Datasat LS10 w/ Atmos and DIRAC. Datasat RA7300, Aerial Acoustics LR5's (LCR), Aerial Acoustics LR3's (sides), RBH in-walls (rears), Seaton Submersive, Marantz VP15s1, 106" Carada BW screen, Oppo BDP-103.

I was lucky and found a good condition pair of SR3s for my sides and moved my 5's to the rear. Still using the 10s for the front left and right along with a CC3 center. I have no complaints at all with this set up. You didn't state how big a room your basement is but, if you have room, I am sure you can find some SR3s.

Here is someone on ebay with a pair, maybe he will break up his set....http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...akers&_sacat=0

I think I saw a pair of SR-3's in the used section of my local dealer. I would contact John at Audio Video Therapy in Nashua NH. They are open Tuesday through Sunday.

Put this up in another thread...

I'm looking at an ATI AT543NC amp for my front three (Aerial Acoustics 6T and 7CC). They are all currently powered by Emotive XPA-1s for each, but would like to consolidate down due to footprint size (and heat too).

The 6T L/R speakers have a REF5SE preamp on them as well.

I've seen more and more glowing reviews of the AT54XNC amps and Class D as of late. Sounds like Class D has come of age in terms of performance and sound quality.

Thoughts on matching with 6T/7CC and REF5SE?

I'd doubt anyone here has heard the ATI driving 6T's so a recommendation is not likely. I just read up on the ATI and spec wise it seems to be a very good amp and I know ATI has a solid reputation. There is only one way to find out how well they would match.

Never heard the Focal but between the 805 and 5T, they're completely different sounding in every aspect.

If you're a music "purist" that likes the balanced non fatiguing sound with great lower frequencies then go with the 5T, now the 805s are brighter due to the tweeter which I never found to be fatiguing over time then again I don't listen to music/Tv very loud BUT they have a great soundstage as well as a very revealing sound.

If I had to pick I would say the 5Ts make more sense as the 805s aren't $2200 better BUT if they were the same price then I would pick the 805s because the 5Ts have no mids. Now compare the 6Ts vs the 804s and I would be all over the 6Ts

Hey JD....long time! I'm glad to hear that you're easing into your golden, baby-bird-free nest.

Peach Tree speakers have a reputation for mating very well with AAs. Michael Kelly designed them, after all. This might be right up your alley. https://www.peachtreeaudio.com/d5-bo...-speakers.html I've also mated some ACI speakers successfully with my 7Bs. Great value if you can find a good used set (no new anymore). Stick with direct radiating!

Good luck, buddy.

MARGARITAS,

Guys- thanks for the responses. Fortunately, I was able to place the standmounted LR3's on the sides with them being just slightly behind recommended angular location.

Now I just need to purchase some in-walls/ in-ceiling for my back surrounds and (4) atmos speakers. How important is it that these speakers have a similar timbre to the aerials?

When Michael Kelly was giving a demo of his new on/in wall 7T's the Atmos room was using Paradigm surround and ceiling speakers. The sound field was seamless.

It mostly depends on the room correction (EQ) available. I was able to achieve a seamless blend with some very spectrally different speakers by means of applied EQ. It made all the difference. Since Atmos AVRs include EQ, you should be good with any decent surround speakers.

My Datasat RA7300 was manufactured by ATI, and is said to be very similar to the ATI signature series 7 channel amplifier. It works well with my LR5's with a noticeable improvement over my previous Proceed HPA3. Could it be placebo

Next Thursday at Audio Video Therapy in Nashua NH Michael Kelly will be there. I asked them what he'll be bringing but they wouldn't tell me. 25T?? 12T?? I guess I'll find out May 4 at 6:30. Reps from KEF, NAD,PSB,Spendor and Jadis will also be at the event.

I just got a pair of Musical Fidelity m8-700's for a very good price. I have 60 days to see if they will be replacing my Mcintosh. I've only had about an hour with them so far but my initial impression is very good. I emailed Michael before I purchased them to make sure the 700w output was okay and he said so long as I don't drive them to insane levels I should be fine. He was familiar with the MF's and said they sound very good with the 7T's which helped me pull the trigger. Hoping to have a small amp shootout in a few weeks with my current amps, a Krell, an ATI and a Rotel. Will Post thought afterword if I pull it off.

Have to share that I finally have a CC3 on its way to match my Model 6s. Yay!!
Only downside is that it is black and the finish won't match the cherry on the 6s. Other than that I couldn't be more excited.

I have a pair of Atmos in-ceiling speakers from KEF (Ci200RR-THX). They blend really well with the rest of my Aerial speakers and SR-3's in the rear.

I have pair of homemade Ncore400 monoblocks powering my office speakers (KEF LS50's) and love the amps. Given this i'm getting very close to pulling the trigger of going from my Bryston 9BST home theater amp to the ATI ncore version (AT527NC) so I can get everything in a tidy 7 channel version amp. I would think going with the 500wpc AT543NC version would be overkill with the new 6T's given their efficiency. But imo, the Ncore technology is worth the hype.

Yeah, it sounds like Ncore is the way to go now. The hard part is figuring out which version of the AT to go with. I'm already at overkill with the XPA-1 mono blocks (really bought them for the Class A function).

Hell, for the price of a AT543NC, you can get an AT4000 in 3-channels... But I'm guessing its Class AB vs D there and the dampening factor is less...
