Affordable Audio just published their thoughts on the A3, and at least two more A3 reviews are in the pipeline.
2) You indicate that the A1 needs/likes to be close to the wall, but the A1r does not. If, for example, I purchased a 5-channel system with three A1r's across the front and intended to wall-mount the surrounds, would you recommend A1's or A1r's for that? Your naming of the A1r ("r" for revised) suggests that perhaps these A1r's are meant as replacements for the A1's once A1 stock is gone. Or is that not the case?
Agreed: Use the A1r for front main duty and the A1 for onwall use. Good call. BTW, Chris and I just had the chance to do a little Acculine listening and let me just say that I really enjoyed it. This guy is good.
3) What's the ETA on the Acculine subwoofers being in stock again?
Approx May 1st. Expect 25 watts added power and about 2dB more output down low. Costs should be very close to the original level.
4) Regarding the A2's dimensions...is it 7.1" high and 9.3" deep or 9.3" high and 7.1" deep?
They're deeper than they are wide.
5) If a receiver is not rated for 4ohms, would it still be reasonable to drive four 8-ohm A1r's and a *single* 4-ohm A2 or would the A2 not be recommended?
We've yet to have a report of the four ohm models causing any competent receiver fits, so I'd say go for it. The A2 is not an excessively low or reactive four ohm load.
