To hfiron. Thank you for the additional info. The HR-1's are $4895, the much smaller and less gorgeous HRRx is $2495......$2400 price difference may account for their starling performance.
Regrettably, I have abandoned auditioning any of the DECWARE SPEAKERS ON HOME TRIAL. The reason is simple, potential buyers must pay round trip shipping from and back to Peoria, Illinois, and if you return the speaker of your choice there is a 10 % restocking fee. I diplomatically lodged a complaint about this policy with Steve, and decided to look elsewhere.
Selah Audio has a generous home trial policy where the buyer only pay return shipping back to North Carolina if your return the speaker you choose to audition. The Selah speaker " Dicennio" is a revamped version of the former the Prestigio. and is $3495 It is an MTM design using the RAAL tweeter. Not sure if it is worth the bucks when their are other speakers in that price range, though used, that could be a better and a better value. I will have to see
Thanks again to those who have responded S.J..
