Default Aerial Speakers

Any news on when Aerial will release the 12T or any knowledge on what type of drivers will be used?

Thanks. I heard a rumor that they would be introduced in January 2016? Maybe it's time to look for a used pair of 20Ts, instead of waiting on the 12Ts.

What do you mean by on wall 7Ts? Mine are pretty heavy, and I can't imagine them hung on a wall.

It's the wood cabinet that makes them so heavy.

True, but the cabinets help give the speaker its sound. I suspect that putting the drivers and crossover in something you can hang on the wall will sound different from the 7T. At least, that's my guess until proved different.

The bass will not be as deep but these will be for HT use along w/an on wall center. Michael figures customers will be using subs to cover the lower end. He's also developing new on wall rears.

My 7Ts are used as the fronts for my HT/Surround system. I use it almost as much for music as HT.

I have been on an upgrade path lately to build around my Aerial 7ts...Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 integrated amp, Bryston BDP2, Bricasti M1 DAC, Dual SVS SB13 Ultra subs, all Wireworld cables. With each upgrade the sound was clearly improved, not always night and day, but easily heard. Now I'm looking for suggestions between 15-17K, new or used to maybe replace the Aerial7ts. So far I have listened to Dynaudio C2 Platinums, Vienna Acoustics Liszt, and a friends Raidho C 3.1. Vienna and Dynaudio are nice, but not I would never sell the 7Ts for either one of them. The Raidho's are fantastic, but way out of my price range. Any suggestion? Just like with my other upgrades..I would like a little more detail, a little more space between instruments, in general just a little more of what the 7Ts excel at.
