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.

I think you will love them. I discovered their Mira Monitors after I bought the TADs and would have liked to hear them. Good luck. Let us know how you like the Aviors.

I met Ken and listened to the Aviors yesterday.

Ken ran the Aviors with the BAT REX amp, REX preamp, Krell Cd player and Nordost cables.

The Aviors sound great! They're right at the top of my list, just below the large TAD reference and ahead of the Wilsons.

I'll start a new thread outlining my thoughts on the Rockport, but since this is a BAT thread, one word on the REX equipment....

WOW!

Just two loudspeaker auditions left before I make my decision :scratch2:

New poster, long time BAT sound lover. listen to about 99% vinyl.
Currently using the
VK-P10 phono
REX preamp
REX amplifier
YG Acoustics Carmel speakers, w/2X JL audio F110 subs
Kubala and Audioquest cables. But prefer even the lower level Kubalas to the SKY ICs.

Ken

Right now using the SME V arm with Lyra Kleos cartridge and Michell Gyro SE MKII, and Kubala (sme din > XLR) phono cable. I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a new table but still cant decide between SME and Clearaudio.
Arm and cartridge will be around for a long time.
I like the VK-P10 alot. Probably one of the very few that prefer it over the P10se, that I used to own.
