@mgattmch This speaker (system) also caught my eye and I'd love to hear it myself. It has received a lot of show coverage. Hopefully there will be some thorough reviews in the near future. Thank you for posting and starting a thread on it.

I agree with lalitk, the Avantgarde Trio XD plus Basshorn system sounded and looked stunning. Probably the best sound at the show? $150k or thereabouts just for the speakers! To say nothing of the incredible size of this system, wish I had a listening room big enough to accommodate this system
david_ten, you are most welcome. I am also looking forward to reading a formal review on the Eikon active speakers and complementary DSP pre-amp.
I heard the Avantgarde system and I agree it was stunning--but I just can't get beyond looking at it and asking myself where does that go in the real world? That system requires most people to change houses. I had the same reaction to the Von Schweikert Audio room, but on a grander scale--the physical impracticability overwhelms me, I guess. Between the two I thought the Avantgarde sound was more compelling, but that's just me. I'm sorry I didn't hear the Eikon system. Based on these posts I will make it a priority in the future.
AXPONA 2018 marks the arrival of Gayle Sanders with the launch of EIKON Audio. Sanders co-founded Martin Logan in 1982, where he remained for about three decades just to move the Do My Assignment Australia organization in 2005. After around four years, Sanders recognized he was missing the industry and got the itch to return as he hit the audio show circuit and prepared for re-entry.
