@wr_aspireI started with a pair of LS50 then Dynaudio confidence C1 platinums. I moved on to a pair of Magico S1mkII and then to the Rockport Atria II.
I really enjoyed the S1mkII but was searching for a more complete speaker. I auditioned the A5,Estelon Yb, and the Atria at my local dealer all in the same system. I found that the Rockport was more coherent and “natural”. It has the ability to disappear and just let you enjoy the music. I do pair them with the JL audio F110v2 subs. They are not really needed but fill out the bottom slightly.
The one thing I did learn with the Atria is to they do not play well with the Octave monos that I had. The octave amps output impedance was very high and caused a bump in the midrange.
I like the Rockports so much that even though I said this was my endgame I am waiting for delivery of a pair of Cygnus to replace the Atria and subs.
