After posting, I read the Guru reviews and see there's a dealer in New York - will have to go and listen to them, since they have created such a buzz. May have to forego visuals if they're that good. Any others?

I have a collection of Roy Allison's 'RA Labs' speakers. I don't know how they compare to the Allison line, but the Labs were highly thought of when they were reviewed. My experience is they are one of the best sounding speakers made, especially the passive subs, which I drive with vintage Kenwood amps. I don't use the crossover in the subs but simply put an 8 ohm resistor on the out put. Gives great bass. Labs went bust.
I would like to check out the current Allison's, so where is the dealer in New York.
I was talking about the Guru dealer, but go to Allisonacoustics.com/our-dealers.html and you will find the dealers. I got my Fours from Burt's in Kingston and it was the last one. Good luck! Jaybo, I agree that they are really great speakers - but dont so far hear the update in the drivers:) - but then again, I've only had them for a few weeks. The Ones, Threes and Fours were classics, and with "modern" drivers and crossovers would probably be incredible.
