    Hi guys,
    Here is the situation, I can buy brand new Alpha 20 $50 cheaper than demo IL 10, I heard them both, Like them both, but I couldnt do the A/B comparision cause they are at the different stores. so with the above criteria, which pair you would go with?

    Thanx in advance for your suggestions.

    I preferred the sound of the IL10 to the Alphas, so that pretty much sums up my recommendation.

    you're looking in the wrong place for IL10's, they should be less expensive than the alphas

    When I bought my IL10's I paid around 120 dollars for the pair from the Harman store on ebay. They are refurbs but were in perfect condition with a full factory warranty.
    As far as I know the employee cost on Alpha 20's is $182 dollars a pair.
    So you might be able to score some IL's on ebay cheaper. I believe that with the Buy it now option they were about 160 a pair.

    I don't think there's enough difference in sound quality to make a real difference either way, so I'd save the $50 and get the Alpha. Since the Alpha line is still current, it'll be easier to add to your system if need be, too.

    If you want, run the 'employee price' by me (PM or email). It may not be as 'special' as you think.
