Avalon Transcendent vs Rockport Mira
Hi all, curious on impressions on the key differences between these two from anyone who has heard them in the same setup?.
I had the pleasure of auditioning with a friend who is seeking to upgrade. Both were really quite wonderful to me, and the first time I have heard any Rockport other than the Arrakis at shows. but unfortunately had to audition them on different gear. Very similar price range.
The Transcendents were paired with Rowland, the Miras paired with VTL.
My impression was the Avalons were overall more holographic and laid back, fast and warmer sound.
Rockport were more dynamic with superior bass extension. Touch punchier. Wider soundstaging.
But listening in 2 different rooms with different electronics is always a hard call.
