KlausDK Posted August 3, 2016 Report Share Posted August 3, 2016 Dear All I am in an almost Frank Marsi kind of philosophic mode (sorry Frank for the comparison, love your philosophic postings). The good news are, I finally got hold af a set of AR-9, a speaker I have wanted, and been looking for, now for more than 10 years, I went for a local find, since shipping wasn't really realistic They are in wonderfull shape, not modified or vandalised in any way, except for the last surround repair of the woofers, where the wooden rings went down the drain together with the old surround material By the way, did you know that the European AR-9 models are/were 7 kg lighter than the US made, properly mainly due to a different choice of cabinet material, in Europe the lighter particleboard was used, instead of ply-wood. My problem is - I agree - quite a luxury problem, but now I do not have any more AR speakers to look for, I have or have had all models that I would like to, I have not kept all of them, but many, some of them I have found/acquired more than once, but I have no more not yet explored AR speakers on the wanted list, for the first time in almost 15 years; I feel that I am on a cross road in my life, where I will have to redefine my "Raison d'être" Some of you AR-coholics most have been in the same situation, how did you cope??
