Gotcha. Audio Advice has an exclusive for North America (I'm assuming that carries over to their high end products too) and I'd never heard of them until a few months ago.Well looking back it's bait click. All sorts of brands, gushing review, TUBES, plus no turntable not in picture.
The turntable, phono preamp and DAC are on the other side of the front wall, which is my office. I feed the necessary cables through the wall. I don't like crowded spaces so I split up the gear, particularly those devices that also feed my office system.Where's the turntable?
Yes, I am a proud first More folks go for the Aurora 700. All Heco speakers are a few months away from entry in the U.S. market.
You say that so dismissively, as if gushing reviews are never deserved and as if tubes are in all cases a bad choice. Amir gives gushing reviews on occasion. I love his reviews because he appears to be more even-handed than some of his followers.Well looking back it's bait click.

For somebody to make the first post claiming the virtues of a set of speakers just raises my suspicion.
Thank you for digging a little deeper before replying.Not his first post and he has been a member for over 2 years. I think OP is authentic that’s why I went to check out the speakers on Amazon.
Suspicion of what? That it is a plant for a vendor?For somebody to make the first post claiming the virtues of a set of speakers just raises my suspicion.
There are times when I wonder myselfPS no I don't trust your ears.
It isn't well known, until very recently, particularly after Andrew Robinson and Audioholics did reviews.And how come that you decidet for them?
Dont think that heco is so well known in US?
That is not correct, HECO and Magnat were acquired by the US group Audiovox (now named Voxx International) 20 years ago:Unfortunately HECO was recently acquired by Magnat and they seemed to have discontinued their Direkt series that I was recently introduced to and wanted to listen to. Finding a used HECO in the US of course will be almost impossible so maybe in Europe...
oops! I thought I read they were in an acquisition that went down last year. Hmm. Either way, they killed the Direkt lineThat is not correct, HECO and Magnat were acquired by the US group Audiovox (now named Voxx International) 20 years ago:

You need to skip all of that foolery and just try a Hypex NCore amp. They are the best amps you can buy for the money (and for much more money). If price isn't a concern, upgrade to a Purifi-based amp. However, I'm not yet convinced humans can hear a difference between them, even if on paper the Purifi is "better". So, NCore powers my system.I would not touch a Class D amp, and I've had four high-end units, the most recent PS Audio, with a ten foot pole.
Just looked at the measurements. They are very good. Ridiculously wide though, so they might not play well in my small room due to too much reflected sound.Rightfully so, however the measurements for the price seem pretty darn good..
The German made Heco Aurora 1000 floor-standing speakers ($799/ea) were put through the wringer with our in depth measurement testing and yielded surprising results. Are these the speakers to get?www.audioholics.com
