Rockport's Avior: 220 pounds of joy

The three-way, 220 lb Avior loudspeaker from Rockport Technologies ($29,500/pair) uses the same beryllium tweeter as the company's $225,000 Arrakis, complemented with all-new midrange and bass drivers that are built around Rockport's proprietary carbon-fiber sandwich/composite cones. The Avior sounded truly impressive with a Playback Designs MPS-5 CD/SACD player/DAC ($17,000), Electrocompaniet EC4.8 preamplifier ($5129), BAT VK-655SE amplifier ($14,000), and cabling from Transparent Audio. A representative from the Omaha, Nebraska dealer The Sound Environment demonstrated the system with humor, charm, candor—and good music.

Stereophile,

Is there any way that you can have Johnny R's posting privileges taken away.  He is really detracting from your posts on RMAF...keep up the good work Stereophile I truly enjoy everything you guys write on.

Just ignore me............can't be that hard to do. Besides I bring up valid points at times that are ignored by Stereophile.

Are you a participant on the Forums? If so you can see that if I was banned then so should be over half of those on there also. Not a nice place to visit.

Your complaining reminds me of an episode of MASH where Hotlips storms into Henry Blakes office and complains about Trapper John and Hawkeye....."Those two are ruining this war for all of us!"
