    if you are going to consider the GR speakers (great choice) you may want to consider the new AV-3. Supposedly this is a real improvement, and Danny has said some people prefer it to the Diluceo.

    How are these speakers going to be used. If these are to be joint HT/music you might want to lean toward the AV-3.

    Just a thought. I own the AV-1s with caps upgrade and love them.

    Sorry that I can't be of any service, as I'm still half a year (at least) away from upgrading my fronts, but if it's of any service, I should be receiving a pair of GR Research's Criterions for an in-home demo in the near future if you want to come over and listen with me, although the rest of my gear isn't really up to snuff. (I'm in Troy)

    If nothing else, keep me updated as I'd love to see and hear your final speakers, whatever they turn out to be.

    If these are HT speakers, get the new AV-3s. According to the reports you wont be disappointed.

    Danny,
    I have been meaning to get up there, but I have been busy. Maybe after the new year, before the semester starts.
