Many thanks for the measured, accurate and insightful critique of the AKSA. I particularly enjoy talking with you about audio, because you like the music, and place it higher than all this rhapsodizing about the equipment, which is clearly important, but must remain secondary to the musical performance and so should be utterly transparent.
I agree you scarcely notice the GK1 - until it's taken out of the system. Then it becomes clear that it adds something organic, almost human.
I will treasure your comment about being 'Fagin of the audio world'! Wonderful!!
The AKSonics, which I did not design and thus can rave about without false modesty, are an astonishing speaker, because with just a 6.5" woofer they manage to sound like an 8", yet with the speed of a full range. But for me it's the imaging, which follows you around the room, something the MTMs find extremely difficult to imitate.
Thank you again for your post; it's very valuable for people looking closely at the market.
