Thanks for the info. The fellow on Audiogon really has a very fair price on those Ascents. I am in the process of purchasing my first home, and haven't much extra right now in the way of fundage. It's KILLING me. You are right. They look barely broken in. I just keep repeating "I believe in miracles, I believe in miracles, I..."
I totally agree with you. The Ascents are the starting point of fantasyland for me. The Aerius are wonderful speakers though. I first heard them at Hillcrest HiFi in Dallas while I was down there on business. I listened to B&W Nautilus 803s as well. You have to factor for placement, room treatment,gear etc. but I really enjoyed the Aerius speakers more than the B&Ws. Especially for mid/highs. I've never heard speakers that I thought the imaging was as nice on.
Now... to find my new best friend from Louisiana...
