Legacy Audio Focus SE compared to the Legacy Aeris Speakers

I am looking for owner opinions of the Legacy Audio Focus SE speakers compared to the Legacy Aeris speakers from a sound quality perspective.  I am considering either of the 2, but have to wait another 5 weeks until a new local dealer will have their showroom ready for display.

I only owned the Focus, but it was a much older model.
I liked them a lot but I eventually sold them for some Von Schweikerts. The Aeries has powered subs so I think they would be easier to adjust and place than the Focus. But don’t they cost substantially more?


I reviewed the Focus, Focus SE, Whisper, Whisper DSW Clarity Edition, Helix and the V, all for Dagogo.com. I have owned the Focus, Focus SE, Whisper and Whisper DSW Clarity Edition. So, if you want a thorough analysis of Legacy sound you can read all of them.

I have heard the Aeris several times. Buy the Aeris. Top to bottom it’s in a different league than the Focus SE. You can trust my opinion, or wait five weeks and buy the Aeris anyway. :)

We are a Legacy dealer and couldnt agree more.

The Aeris is in an entirely different league. The overall clarity and tonality is similar the sense of scope is way different. The Aeris has a much larger sense of space, tighter much deeper bass and is just spectacular in dynamics.

It is really a no brainer.
