I do. I flew to the Legacy Audio plant in Springfield, IL in June to demo the Aeris and the Whisper XD, both of which now come off the line with the new Air Motion Tweeter. I surprised myself -- I was anticipating that I'd choose the Aeris (which had a wonderful sound). I ultimately chose the Whisper XD for two reasons: I think it's got a better bottom end (tighter, deeper, more slam) and it's got a wider sweet spot.

I've been quite happy with my purchase. They're magical.
