Evolution Acoustics MM2/MM3


Hi,

i am toying with the idea of replacing my current speakers. I currently have Rockport Aviors, which by the way, I love.

The only reason reason I would contemplate changing the Aviors are for bigger, better scale of presentation, bass definition and depth and most importantly, the ability to adjust the bass and tweeter response. Hence the veer towards EA speakers.

While I have posted a similar post elsewhere in the forum, I hope someone will be able to comment on whether I am looking in the right direction or not? Also, I would be quite keen to buy a used pair of MM2 or MM3 ( for that matter) if someone here is keen to sell theirs on way to an upgrade.

neeless to say, I have heard only good things about EA and some recent impression, of one of my good audiophile friends, of the MM7 at Mike Lavigne's has piqued my interest substantially. Surely, I don't want to lose on the trade-in, so lots of things jostling in my mind at the same time. 

Would welcome ideas.......please!

cheers

I can only add my experience in 30 years' audio (and... love for music... obviously) just ended in 2016 with a purchase of EA MM3's speakers.
I came from Kharma Grand Ceramique and I know very well all the higher actual Kharma production; furthermore I currently listen to a few high systems of my friends with Wilson Maxx3/Alexandria; Rockport Ankaa, YG Anat and before making my choice I visited two editions of Munchen high-end fair with many interesting rooms and speakers.
My preference goes to EA MM3's that shows great detail through all spectrum and have an exceptional the ability to adapt to relatively small spaces and also to sound great in large rooms. The option of tuning the bass is very useful and the integration bass-mid-highs is excellent.
One caveat? weight! 575 lbs are not easy to deal with.
my two cents

Sujay I would not just be worried about a speakers bass integrating well into a listening room. You need to hear every speaker before you buy. MM speakers I believe use ceramic drivers which have a certain sound just as carbon fiber and other drivers. You may not like the mids compared to what you have. I think tonality and true to life dynamics are important as well as bass.
Thanks Marco and jwm.

clearly, I am making no move without an audition. At this level, it does come down to personal taste.
I agree with jwm that it's not just about bass integration, though my original point was that I would like the flexibility to adjust the bass in case of and when I move residence. Having said this, I have heard quite a few speakers and the way the Aviors integrate is probably second to none. Reiterating my original point, the only two areas worth consideration and more scoping would be adjustability and scale.

thanks!!

I must admit, the addition of a pair of subwoofers has improved the scale quite a bit bringing the performance closer to large floor standers, which only leaves the issue of adjustability unaddressed.
