 Hi Kalman

 I'm glad you posted a review of these two babies since I was waiting for one - in english that is. Seeing the associated equipment you tested the sony's with, I wanted to know if you had the chance to test the AR1's with the matching DR1's amp and transport. If that'd be the case, could you share your experience with an avid Sony fan :) ?

 best regards

Even though, you would have to shell out 27K. They sound worth it; I would cherish I smaller exclusive company more, as my 1st pricey speaker set? It was interesting to know slight movements of the speaker and listener do account for something.
