I am curious if any one has ever considered buying a speaker previously owned and liked, but decided to either downsize or look for a "different" type of sound.
I ask because I purchased a pair of Acoustic Zen Adagios speakers about 5-6 years ago, and decided to downsize the system with a less heavy speaker that was easier to move around. The Adagios were 80 lbs each. I currently own a pair Golden Ear Technology model 7 speakers (purchased in 2014) which are smaller and lighter at 37 lbs each. The Adagios are 50 inches tall, and the GET 7's are 40inches with a slimmer profile.
I realize the Adagios are almost three and a half times more expensive than GET 7's. which are $1395. They can sound very good, but I have come to realize they are not in the same league sound quality wise as AZ Adagios. and may possibly be the best speaker I ever owned. Of course, hindsight or hindsound is a wonderful thing. Thanks, SJ
