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.
So what happened? Anything new?

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco

No new product physically. Michael demoed the 6and 5T speakers. He did bring photos of the new 25T which he his currently building. They should be out around Christmas time. Cost around $40,000. If you go to the Audio Video Therapy Facebook page you can see the entire event.

$40,000.00. Is that for a pair or per speaker?

A bargain you get 2 for that price. The ribbon tweeter is gone and replaced w/a beryllium version. The owner of Audio Video Therapy who has known Michael Kelly for over 20 years recently stopped by the Aerial facility and saw the finished 25T cabinets. He described them as stunning. Also the Aerial Sub has officially been discontinued. Michael feels there are plenty of quality subs available.

I'd like to fly out in my private jet to take a look at them.












Rats, I just remembered. I don't have a private jet.



Or an extra $40,000.00.

Are the new Aerial 7T's voiced different from the previous model 7B's? I wonder if amp pairing is the same for the new generation of Aerial speakers as it was for the previous ones...

They use different drivers so I would think they are voiced differently. I would ask Michael re amp pairing.

Regarding the voicing, they match very well.

Regarding the amplification, you will not need such beefy power supplies and watts since the newer generation is more efficient and easier to drive.

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, 123" diag 16:9 Stewart Cima Neve screen, Oppo BDP-103.

It appears you're having a difficult time deciding on various components to build your system. I understand completely as I was once in your exact position. The choices are overwhelming.

I would start with the speakers then choose an amplifier based on the speakers' sensitivity, what volume you prefer to listen at, and how far away you sit from your speakers.

Regarding your choice of aerials, they are all excellent choices. My favorites are still the LR5's because they are so easy to position in the room and were designed to sound as good behind a screen as they do out in the room (using the built-in boundary selection switch). They also perfectly match the legendary CC5 center. In my opinion the LR5's are aerial's best sounding and most accurate design. Their design is plain and they are VERY large; and they require a sub. If you have the room I suggest you put the LR5's high on your list. Most people will have a sub anyway.

Decide your budget and buy the best speakers you can afford. I suggest you buy used as you will always get so much more for your money. Most aerial owners take very good care of their equipment.

I have never heard the LR-5's. I'd really like to but since they are no longer made that might be next to impossible. Just out of curiosity jd, have you heard all the other speakers from AA to give the top prize to the 5's? Not doubting you, just wondering. I know my "little" CC3 is the best cc I've ever heard by any speaker company.

The only Aerial's I have not listened to are the new 7 LCR's. I am by no means the ultimate authority on what sounds best as my preference is purely subjective and only my opinion. However, based on conversations with Aerial it appears there are many others that share my opinion.
