    Anyone have any experience with the AE Aegis Evolution One
    speaker? How does that compare with the Dahlquist Qx6?
    I have heard the Evo one and liked it quite a bit, but
    of course the confusion persists. If it is so hard to
    choose a sub $400 speaker, i can only imagine what its like
    to choose a sub $20k speaker or a sub $750k house. we should
    all have the choice of one speaker and be done with it and
    be able to complain how much it sucks...but have to live with it! All this time spent agonizing over a speaker .... sheesh...could have actually been listening to music during that time!

    I plan to audition the Aegis Evos soon. I will try to report back after I have done so.

    I recently stumbled on this review of the AE. I have never listen to this speaker so I can't say how accurate this review is.

    I heard it recently with a friend shopping for a stereo system. sounded excellent to me. having said that, it was paired with a S$5,000 CD player, but with a Rotel RA02 integrated amp. we tried the same electronics with Mission's m74. absolutely no contest, the AEs were miles better.

    There is a review of this speaker also at Stereophile. Amazingly flat freq response for the $$ (check out Fig 6). Good low freq extension too. I got a pair of 300c's based on the review of the Aegis Evo 1. AE makes excellent speakers.
