I enjoyed the read rebbi. How do you like these Fritz compared to the Spatial Audios and which ones are you keeping?

Two of the nicest guys in the audio business are Clayton Shaw and Fritz. I have the Spatial M4's and they may end my quest for the ultimate speaker at anywhere near its price point. They are my first OB speaker and I thought I would never upgrade from my Linkwitz LXmini's, which are astounding speakers, but lack a certain visceral impact and upgrading to a better 4 channel amp would be pricey. The M4's, powered with a 5wpc tube amp, are just stunning, like no speaker I have ever owed. I have heard Fritz speakers at audio shows and they are also excellent and very fairly priced. I wanted floorstanding speaker so went with the M4's. Both give a money-back guaranty if you are not happy so you can't go wrong hearing both of them.
Agreed and agreed! The Spatial's are quite wonderful and to this day continue to relax and sound even more musical and open. I am also running mine, as you may know, with a low-power tube amplifier and the results are stunning. Now that they have well over 100 hours on them, I did a little more fine-tuning of the positioning and the results have been terrific.
I didn't see the price for the Fritz speakers you so adroitly reviewed. My M4's have about the same number of hours and once they hit 50 hours, they really started to bloom. My tube muse, Don Sachs, is going to build a KT66-based amp for me to drive them. These are the first OB speakers I have had and they really open up with a tube amp. Fritz goes at speaker design rather differently than Clayton, but both make excellent sounding speakers for a fair price. "Cheap and cheerful", that is the way I roll.
