After trying other speakers over the years. From Aerial 10 T's, Eggleston Andra MK II & Thiel CS6's which where darn good I must say. I went back to Vandersteen which I began my audio journey back in 1974 with. When the 5A's are set up correctly. Which takes time because of the 11-band room -compensation bass system. They're really fantastic. Some day maybe down the road, the Vandersteen 7's are on my list. There is a lot to be said for speakers that are Time Phase Aligned. For now the only thing that I will be doing. Is adding a SVS PC 12 Plus subwoofer.Also Thinking and considering either a 80"or 92"screen with an overhead projector.
