Hello ungo4! The emo stuff is great eh? Wonderful build quality in everything they make and for what you get in return for your hard earned dollars is nothing short of fantastic.
I have the UPA-7 amp, the ERT 8.3 towers and the ERD-1 surrounds. I also bought a used LMC-1 prepro to replace the HK AVR 247 that I've been using as pre/pro since getting the UPA-7. That will be here on Monday.
The 8.3 towers are one of the best sounding speakers I've ever heard, and by far the best I've ever owned. I auditioned speakers extensively back in 2000-2001 looking for something I could like for a long time. I heard speakers up to $5000/pr
that I could live with but not at the price asked. I ended up with a pair of Infinity Interlude IL50s and a month later a pair of IL40s. The IL40s were the pick of the Interlude series, best all around of the lot. I later bought a pair of IL30s. Great sounding 2 way tower speaker. The IL50s are gone but the 30s and 40s are still here doing BR duty.
I remember well how those $4-5000 speakers sounded, and the 8.3s sound as good as or better than those speakers, and for 1/3 the price. And with inflation I'd have to say these 8.3s would compare with higher priced speakers than that! Just my opinion of course. Word about these speakers will get out, its just a matter of time.
Emotiva has a real winner in these 8.3s.
Which speakers did you buy?
