Thank you for the reply, Jim. I kept on wondering which one I would prefer. I’ve always been intrigued with the RAALs, but there is always the nagging thought that maybe, just maybe, the SEAS would be better for me. That you have described their differences quite clearly made me shout, THIS IS REALLY IT!
I wanted them so bad, I made a mock up out of cartons, with the exact dimensions. I didn’t expected them to be this big. A lot bigger than it looks in the pictures. A lot bigger still compared to the Dynaudio C1 which I was seriously considering, until I stumbled upon Salk speakers. The one thing that immediately grabbed my attention was the RAAL ribbon tweeter. After going through all the models for weeks, I decided on the Exotica Monitors. It was with great joy when I learned that it’s now offered with the RAALs. Awesome.
Now I realized there are two more questions that I have to answer: which veneer to choose and how to get the funds to get these babies into my wide open arms?
