    Im considering building either Gr research AV1 or MB1 by Dennis Murphy. Has anyone compared these directly?

    It also seems that for that price, i could buy some high quality prebuilts (Paradigm Titans).

    Which would be the better way to go?

    Definitely AV1 or MB1 over the titan's or other similar priced pair.

    I have both the AV1's and MB1's, I have not yet directly compared the two but from what I can tell they are very identical. When I do the comparison I am not expecting them to be very different. When I finish my stands, I will do the comparison. From a crossover point of view, the GR's only have 7 components (two being bypass caps), while the MB1's have 14 components. The GR's also come in a complete kit. With the MB1's you'll have to shop around till you get everything you need.

    If you need to know now, I would say AV1's. After the comparison, that may change but the AV1's will always have the more quality components and simpler to build crossover.

    Tough to beat considering the quality and simplicity of the kit.
