Hi Bob,i am not in Italy,i live in England.
The reason why i am considering this two speakers,is because i heard them a while ago and they gave me a very good impression.
Now i have found both the speakers on the second hand market(s/h),and i would like to listen to them on my system.
From wich of the two shall i start?
I see,both are excellent though its been 7 years since I heard the Gershman.Thinking the Raven might fill your room better/fuller is the only thing that comes to mind.As you know your amp is fine for either so it comes down to system synergy which is hard to predict......its going to be good,you must be excited!
i owned a pair of gershman avant gardes. the only reason i sold them was due to being bitten by the SET bug. the gershman's are fabulous speakers with the right amplifier. your gryphon should do an excellent job of controlling them.
their bass is deep and tight and their midrange is warm and full from what i recall. the highs could be a bit more extended, but that's really a judgement call. it's been a while since i heard a pair so my acoustic recollection might be rather spotty.
i haven't heard the avalon or the talon so i can't comment on either of them.
Looked into proac response 2.5's? These are absolutely superb floor standers that sound very coherent articulate, and go quite low in the lower octaves. Very musical and pitch coherent speakers. I own a pair of these as well as a pair of Eggleston andras and sometimes wonder about switching over to the proacs in my smallish listening room.
