The only Audiokinesis speakers I've heard -- other than the SWARM which are wonderful with my current Magneplanars -- were the original Jazz Modules, and that was a long time ago. I've been saving up for Planetarium Beta main speakers, but in this economy the piggy bank is filling very slowly. So I'm considering less expensive alternatives within the line, or even one of the pending kit speakers.
My question of the moment: Do the Jazz Modules exist in version 2.0 yet? Last I'd heard the original bass? drivers were defunct, so a redesign was in the works. But that was before the Pro Audio line took off and other hopefully good things happened for Audiokinesis.
My end goal, as you may remember, is to evolve to my "final" retirement system. Hopefully simplifying as I go. I now have the Atma-Sphere M60 amps, so I'm looking for the best speaker match. Ralph Karsten is very high on your speakers as a match. And I'm very high on Duke, based on past interactions and help with my Maggies, and the Swarm, etc. So I'm trying to set a realistic goal, and buy something sooner that I can afford, rather than waiting who-knows-how-long until I can afford the Planetarium Betas. Hence the interest in Jazz Modules...
