Ugliest tweeter grill ever!

Any relation to Indy Audio Labs, creators of the lovely Aragon Iridium and 8008 Power Amplifiers, Indydan?

I kind of see your point with regards to the grill, but I don't mind it in the slightest, myself.

At $2,000.00 / pair, that's sort of (for me) a classic price point for Stereophile Class B, circa the Aragon heyday.

Heck, that's $400 less than the PSB Stratus Gold i, or the same price (MSP) as the original.

And speaking of Gold, what I find interesting is that Monitor Audio now, with their Silver range, use their traditional gold-plated tweeter.

A friend of mine still has his Monitor Audio MA1800 Gold Loudspeakers in his system, and they have a more tradition wire mesh protector...

Whereas the Gold (and Platinum) range now uses a ribbon style tweeter.

Something you might find in the warehouse if you're an Indiana Jones, Jones Soda, typo sort. :)

I have to agree with you on this... At least they could have kept the same styling they used in the Silver 200 - but this pear shaped grill, going around the mid driver is really fugly!

I like it alot and I hope they paint the midrange same color with similar grill.

The cumulative spectral-decay plot looks good, put I have a question about what make a speaker have a good spectral-decay and how that reflect the sound?

I have heard some of their more expensive speakers and absolutely love them. I do hope their partnership with Roksan bears fruit because I think Roksan needs a better presence here in North America and maybe with Monitor Audio's nice lineup this can happen. Would love to get a Xerxes and a pair of MA speakers.

Would it be possible for you to post a diagram and/or photos of your Connecticut set up?
