I've no plans to change (at least for a few years -never say never) speakers. It was and is still just a matter of curiosity. Also, I vaguely remembered hearing good things about the aerial speakers and then nothing until being reminded about them from the ads.richb51: Local dealer in my town use to carry Aerial and I have had a chance to compare them with some Dyn's I had before they decided not to carry them anymore. Very good speakers but not in the same boat with most Dynaudio in my opinion. Listen for yourself order a pair from Audio Advice, I am getting those ads as well, hopefully, they don't have a huge restocking fee, or you can just resell the pair you don't like as much, I have gone that route before. Frankly, I think some Dyn's are a bargain, especially the Special 40's right now and a few others.
