I picked up a pair of the Aviano 6 speakers for $479 delivered... Had been watching them for awhile and seen them at around $1100 for the pair. Why the sudden drop in price? Don't know but had to snath them up... I have enjoyed using them in conjunction with my Rotel system. Very smooth and detailed. A great price that shouldn't be ignored. I've had a pair of MS55Ti's for sometime and have admired the brand but always perplexed by the lack of attention here in the US.
