They need a lot of power to make them come alive-like big Bryston mono blocks for example.
Thanks, that's good to know. Sometimes when I start looking at different options, I realize it may be best to keep what I have.

I used to have the 7Ts in my stereo, but now they are the fronts for my HT/surround system.

I would highly encourage the tweaks. I consider power, cables, and vibration control the foundation upon which to build a stereo. Get a solid foundation, and any future gear will work at its best right from the start.

Well, I'm lucky I received an incredible deal that finally made me sell my Aerial 7Ts. I should have a pair of Raidho C 3.1s by the end of the month.

Congrats on the Raidho speakers, they should be quite an upgrade (not to take anything away from your Aerials.) I've heard that the Raidho speakers can be quite revealing and demanding of the partnering electronics, hopefully yours will prove to be up to the task.

I'm getting the Raidho speakers from a friend. I've already heard them at his house with a JR 525 amp and it was very good. The good news is I can bring my amp to his house and listen prior to bringing them home.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity without incurring any risk, and I wish you all the best with what should be a very significant upgrade!

went to his house this weekend and listened to the Raidho C 3.1s for a couple of hours. Yes, they did some things better than the Aerial 7ts, but overall I concluded that they weren't worth the additional cost and I'm keeping my 7Ts. I decided to replace my Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated amp with the Jeff Rowland 625 mk2 amp and ordered Stillpoints for the 7Ts.

Bud,

I would appreciate a PM on your thoughts comparing Aerial 7ts to Magico S5?
