    How about a higher end tower that goes deeper then the A5. I'd love to see what Jon could build in the $1000- 1200 price range! Something to compete with the Golden Ear Triton 7's, or the Monitor Audio Silver RX6. I believe that is a strong selling price segment. Only so much time in the day I know… but it's fun to think about.

    I have four A1bs, two as sides and two rears and they work just fine with the A5s LCR, it's reallt nice to have all the same type speaker all around (brand) it makes a difference. Considering going with all A5s for a 5.2 setup, acquired a vintage mint SACD player and would like to have all 5 matching speakers.
    Cheers Jeff

    The ARX A1b can be used as surrounds. You can aim them toward the LP if it's just you. If by dispersion, you mean dipoles, then I can't help you.

    Worst case scenario and the vinyl did start to come off. Either rewrap, add vener or prep and paint/gloss, etc..

    I too am waiting for the newer speakers to arrive as I'm eager to get my stereo setup.

    I've had my A5s and A1bs for a year and they are perfect. The wrap is very well made and tight. It's quite possible that the ones with peeling veneers were dinged while moving them. They are very solid and heavy, especially the A5 at 55 pounds each and I can image dinging a corner if you are not careful.

    I was very surprised to see how those vinyls was peeling off. Mine is still pretty much perfect (going on 2 years with the smaller A1's) . Maybe it was just a bad batch of glue or something. Manufacturering issues happen sometimes. I worked for Honda building Acuras and Accords and from experience there is always issues. 60 cars in a row with bad seat belt bolts, not tightened down to spec but luckily it was caught before they left.

    So far Arx speakers have a excellent reputation (other than the basic black look) and so far those seem to be the only isolated problems.

    We haven't had any such issues reported to us, but I do know of two instances where FedEx dinged a cabinet corner and the damage let the wrap loose. It can be cemented back down but any deformity of the cabinet itself means the flaw is still visible. In short, this is an excellent quality wrap used in tens of thousands of cabinets annually and it's certainly not prone to spontaneous failure.

    Some time ago I mentioned those processes here as well.
    Arx is made to our contract by a capable major OEM currently producing most of the higher-end loudspeaker product - both passive and powered - in the European home and pro fields. This is no small endeavor and it is entirely suitable to translate the unusual Arx entity into 100% QC-checked product of the quality, fit and finish, and durability a performance-oriented brand like Arx needs. In other words, if Arx kind of musicality and output are to exist at all we're going to need to ensure the Arx factory is up to the standard. It is, hands-down. We guarantee it.

    USA made is even better, and the price is even better, Jon get a mock up drawing of this speaker, you've piqued my interest to say the least. Everything you do does that:)
    Cheers Jeff
