kwb/Ken, welcome aboard! :wave:

Thanks for the support right out of the gate!

Ken, I would love to hear your take on BAT gear. I obviously love it, but your experience looks broader than mine. :)

The 15x17x8 foot hotel room was an acoustic nightmare for us. I was suprised to get the level of sound we did all things considered... I invite you to come hear them again at our showroom in San Clemente :music: I also have the Rockport Mira II here and they sound great-

Thanks for the clarification on the pre-amp, Ken. I knew the 32SE was in the room though....

Regarding my trip to San Clemente, I'm leaving the house at noon and will stop by to hear the Aviors and Mira II :music: .

BTW, welcome to AA!

On another note:

The break-in period for the 52SE is over and it sounds INCREDIBLE!!! I purchased the 600SE used but it wasn't used much and also benefited from additional play.

I've never heard the Energy Veritas 2.8 sound this beautiful!

I'm happy I decided to buy the BAT 600SE and 52SE. What an incredible sound!

I plan to upgrade the amp to a 655SE after I rebound from my future Loudspeaker and cable purchase.

Ray, I am really happy for you. The VK-52SE preamp and the VK-600SE amp are a terrific combo. I love being able to say "I told you so!" :banana:

Ray, if you make a field trip to hear Rockports, remember WE LOVE PICS! :)

Ray,

Congratulations on the VK-52SE preamp and the VK-600SE amp. What a wonderful combo. Enjoy, and please keep up updated.

Thanks, Randy.... You were right :yes: .

I'll post pictures tonight or tomorrow.

Joe, thanks for the kudos. Please enlighten us: How long have you owned the TAD CR-1's? Did you audition the Evolution? If so, what was you opinion?

Hi Ray,

You are welcome. I love BAT gear as well.

I can't believe it, but it has been 3 months with the CR-1's. I never compared them to anything else TAD. I was obsessed with them and just focused on them. They are truly amazing. I think your BAT gear would be superb with them. The CR-1's are very revealing of upstream electronics and the warmth and musicality from the BAT 600SE and 52SE would prove to be a dynamite combination. Superb low volume listening and pin-point imaging but they do need room to breath even though they are a "small" speaker.

Joe, I totally agree about the CR-1. I was blown away when I heard them the first time - and I was auditioning the Wilson Sophia III and the Sasha on the other side of the room. I really like them.

The TADs are at the top of my list, but I really want the Reference 1 and that's more than a "tad" out of my price range....

Anyway, off to hear the Rockport Aviors.
