    Hey I was on the speaker shootout forum and didn't see where you posted your final results. I am leaning toward the Philharmonic at this point.


    Did I miss where you posted the results or are you still finishing up the evaluations?


    Thanks

    Any interest in comparing with the Philharmonitors/Alexis version? This was the monitor prior to the Raal. There was a "shootout" between the Sierra 2 and the previous Phil about two years ago. The Sierra 2s came out ahead but it was close, as the purchaser decided to keep them both. I was never really satisfied by the comparison as there wasn't much critical analysis written. I heard the S2s at Ascend Acoustics and had been a happy owner of the CBM 170s for many years and am impressed by Dave's work. Plus he's a real nice guy. The comparison would be just for fun and information.

    Thanks!! And yup I've heard a bunch of those big name brands in store and much easier to find so I wanted to branch out a bit

    I probably won't have a ton of time to dive deeper into each speaker as it was a ton of work this far but if you had specific questions about any of them I'm happy to say more!

    At some point, I would like to hear the more detailed breakdown of your thoughts on these speakers. Feel free to wait till you have had full time to evaluate them! Impressive effort and especially useful since EVERY day someone says "have you heard Speaker A and Speaker B and can you comment?", and often times, those are the 200-350 dollar speaker range that you have chosen! Now, we can refer them to your thread for a bunch of the speakers on the list...

    Also, I am glad to hear you didn't do a lot or any name brand speakers- B$W, Def Tech, Martin Logan, Polk, Klipsch, all get plenty of exposure at Best buy, etc and I think are overpriced for what you get!

    Thanks again for this thorough and helpful speaker comparison!
