It will sit there probably for the months to come since I am waiting for the pioneer to come up with hdmi 1.3 av receiver. For the moment, i will cherish my system 2200 in my loft until i have all the gears to keep 4200e running. Reason for me buying this in advance is because prices keep on increasing!
Bassbone, how come you are so well-versed with the chronicles of AT?
Mostly, because I'm a huge fan of AT. And when I was looking for speakers to buy, I looked at a few different setups between two different brands (Paradigm is the other, that's why I know a lot about their product also. I also own Paradigm for another setup).
For AT I was looking at getting 4200's or 6200's (I wound up with 8200's
). But since AT uses the same tweeter in all of their speakers, and same design and materials in their drivers, all you have to remember is which speaker uses what size of driver. And most use the same orientation, so there is only a couple deviations from their standard design to remember. And since I auditioned so many of them, I know how they sound different from each other.
But when I do decide on something, I research the brand, products and company history so deeply, I wind up learning quite a bit. Once I get the knowledge base, I just keep up with new products, and it's easy to stay up to date and be knowledgeable about them.
No big secret, I'm just a big fan. And maybe a little bit of a speaker nerd too.
