My family and I are visiting my Sister and her family up in the Detroit burbs. Didn't have anything to do this morning so I googled and found a shop called Clearview Audio & Video Specialists. Nice little shop. They had KEF, Revel, and Focal speakers and Mark Levinson, Evotiva, Parasound, and PrimaLuna tube amps. The gentleman, Mike, was very nice and let my wife and I listen to a pair of Revel towers (forgot the model) and a pair of Focal Aria 936 towers. Both were powered by a Mark Levison 300 wpc power amp and a fully digital front end. The room was about 15' wide and 20' deep and was nicely treated. The Focal towers sounded very nice. Great sound stage, very dynamic, good extension, and the inverted dome tweeters sounded very natural. Not that cost means anything but he said they were $4000 for the pair. Based on how they sounded and how nice they looked I'd say that was a fair price. It was nice to hear them in a proper room (not a hotel room like Axpona) and we were under no pressure what so ever. Mike seemed very pleased to demo whatever we wanted to listen to. My not so distant future project is to build some DIY acoustic panels for my family room.
