It's logical if people are going to upgrade from Sasha's and spend a significant amount of money to see if it is a huge upgrade or a smaller upgrade. To me it was huge.

It should be huge @ 21K more! Again, it's a silly comparison...but that's my opinion.

heard Alexia with Dan momentums mono, AR Ref5se preamp, Kuzma stabi reference mk2 turntable, 4Point and 47 labs cart and phono...although speakers played almost out of the box you could tell alexia is very refined speaker and with proper amp source cables combination sounds magnificent...congrats...

When it is the next apparent step in a manufacturers product range I think one should always ask if the jump in price is worth the jump in performance in their particular situation.
