    I almost posted this in the Speaker forum but kinda feel like this crowd would be more hip to these beauty's....these are by a wide margin the best speakers I have ever owned...detailed, lush, accurate as hell, fast...I could go on...They are not too hard on the eyes either...

    Don't quote me but I believe Grumpy moved up to AN-E...

    You may be correct Erik. Dave mentioned something about the E's being from a kit. The pair that I have were Ray's...

    Gotcha. What are you driving them with? They do deserve good electronics in front of them.

    Acurus A200 at the moment, but I also have the Lance Cochran Green Monster 60 wpc PP/Tube amp w/ Gold Lion KT88's that gets time as well. B&K P3-II preamp, Rega P3-2000 Denon 103 table, Rega MC head amp, Thule DVA250B, AcK dAck 2.0, good cables throughout. To date this is the best system that I have assembled...:thmbsp:

    Very nice Bill, those are great sounding speakers and pretty cool that you have Ray's.

    I did built Dave's E's; also very nice sounding. :)

    Didn't have the computer on last night so I didn't see this thread. Love those Audio Note speakers. One of my favs!

    Could this be Wallace Stevens's first appearance in the forum?

    These are among my most-wanted speakers. I'm envious but happy for you...I've not even heard a pair, but it's just one of those somewhat irrational wants of something that I just know I would love.

    Thanks everyone...I recently pulled these out the main rig for about 3 weeks to try something "different" in the form of a pair of Paradigm Titans, a very good monitor in its right. Needless to say, hooking back up the AN-J's was akin to returning home...they just sound right...I am constantly amazed at what these seemingly simple 8" two way speakers are able to reproduce across the entire musical spectrum. The midrange is to die for....
