"My favorite room was not really a surprise but more of a revelation. I have heard several Legacy speakers over the years at both shows and in private listening rooms."

"The Legacy Aeris Speakers... at $20,735 (with Black pearl finish), they are without question one of the great values in high-end audio. Yes, that is still a significant amount of money, but these days when all the audiophile magazines are reviewing many speakers in the $50K to $200K range, the Aeris stands tall and strong."

"Bill Dudleston (Legacy CEO and Chief Designer) continues to demonstrate his innovative track record by not being afraid to think out of the box."

"I asked for a little acoustic jazz with some male or female vocals. "The Girl From Ipanena" written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and sung by Astrud Gilberto with Stan Getz on sax is a great test—not bad for a 50-year-old recording (1962).

I have never heard it better.

Vocals were pure and creamy. Piano had plenty of resonance and texture. Even Getz on sax had just the right amount of sizzle and leading edge. This is not always the case with other expensive systems. It can be an impressive track, but that sax can also burn your ears off in the wrong hands."

"Bottom line: There was a combination of transparency and speed along with a natural weight and timbre that was hard to believe at this price point. Definitely worth a listen if not a road trip!"
