Simple... Keep which ever speaker sounds best to you in your listening space.

LOL, you might be on to something there since she is just a girl friend, not married yet... hope this thread stays private. he he he I do love the polks, but man these acoustic research sound great, but so do the phase techs, with such fast and accurate bass response, but the Mirage sound so... REAL... but I can only keep one.. hmm.... dump the girl and keep them all... hmmm.. >:) lol
So would the speakers ever declare that you can only see one girl? And what is she getting rid of/reducing of hers? I do hope there's a comparable requirement & response for both of you...
(And one last thing - who/what have you known & loved longer? If you do have to sacrifice and orphan your loved toys I hope there's an appropriate response...)
WOW, this is getting intense... I really dont want to / cant go into to the personal aspect of everything, but I do agree with all of you in that I should keep what most pleases me... (which might mean I keep all of it.. he he) but I do think that I will be keeping the acoustic research speakers and the polk audio sda for now. I will do my best to clear everything else out and start over. I might be starting over in more than just my audio if things go the way they are going.
This is easy. You like them all for one thing or another, but you really like the Mirages. I say SELL ALL 4 PAIRS and get a pair of Mirage's recently discontinued flagship, the OMD-28s in rosewood. Originally $7500/pair on closeout for $2600. Linear down to the mid-20s at least.
without knowing the motive for your purge, i'd reluctantly part with the phase techs and keep the other three, which are acknowledged classics. i'd rationalize this decision as follows: (a) you are demonstrating some flexibility and compromise by selling one of your cherished speakers; (b) you are demonstrating your personal integrity and strength of character by keeping the others; and (c) being forced to sell the others will engender resentment and/or depression which will inevitably prove toxic to your relationship. remember to buy her some flowers.
??? Can someone please tell me, IF you ONLY had space for one amp, a Yamaha A-1000 integrated auto class A... OR
a Yamaha MX-600u hyperbolic circut amplifier, which one do YOU keep? I want to know more for sound quality and power, not looks or input selections etc... PLEASE chime in ASAP as I have to sell one of them. THanks
