It looks like Audio Advice will once again have a world premiere of a new speaker. At our Digital Media Event we launched the new B&W CM10 to the USA. At Music Matters (Nov 6 in Raleigh and Nov 7 in Charlotte) we will introduce the new Aerial 6T to the world!
Michael Kelly of Aerial Acoustics has been a good friend and supplier to Audio Advice since around 1991 when he first brought his first speaker by- the Aerial 10T. Hundreds and hundreds of you have enjoyed Aerial speakers from Audio Advice for the last two decades. (Actually, it may be thousands, I need to check that.)
His last new model, the 7T has been our best-selling speaker for pairs above $5000. (Which is saying something, considering the 7T is $9999 for the pair!) We've been hoping for a less expensive version and it looks like the wait is over.
Michael will personally introduce the Aerial 6T at Music Matters in November. I have a feeling this is going to be one great speaker! But, since I've not heard it, at this point I can only describe it 🙂
First, it appears to be just a magical physical size. It’s just shy of 43” tall, but only 6 ½” wide at the front. It will have the same beautiful finish options as the 7T - gloss rosenut and nero fine metallic black. The tweeter is identical to the one developed for the 7T. The mid-range driver is a smaller version of the one in the 7T. Michael has also come up with a new woofer technology to get what he says is just amazing bass out of two 5 ¼” long excursion bass drivers.
I suspect the 6T will produce an incredible three-dimensional sound stage, and will have Aerial's classic honest, neutral tonal balance. I can’t wait to hear these and if you attend Music Matters, you can hear them too! The 6T will be almost half the price of the 7T at $5990 for the pair.
