First of all let me preface that all input will be greatly appreciated by all.
Here's where I'm at.. I have decided to either purchase a pair of EgglestonWorks Andra II's or a pair of Avalon Indra's. I know that whichever brand I choose will be a major upgrade over my old JBL L-80T's. The JBL's were fine with mass produced, low resolution entry level gear, but its high time to get some real world loudspeakers.
The problem is... I live in an area that has no high-end shops that carry these two lines. So, I have had to rely on reading reviews, studying speaker design, crossover design, cone materials, and cabinet construction.
I really like the drivers that both brands utilize in their respected cabinets and I believe both brands have maximized the fullest potential of their respected drivers they have chosen to spec.
My gear is listed in my signature below. Any help will be appreciated. There are many people on this forum that know way more than I know when it comes to speakers and are miles ahead of me in their knowledge.
