    Aria stopping retail sales

    Sad to hear that they are closing their retail sales. Used them for many decades and generally had decent service in the cut throat world of box shifters. Though of late their prices weren't cheap enough for what they offered.

    Rega Hum

    Got a weird hum that I can’t figure out. Rega P6 with Ania Pro. Amp is Rega Osiris. I’ve scoured the forums and the only solution I’ve come up with is sitting the Aria MK3 on its side. Hum completely disappears. Obviously this isn’t optimal. Any suggestions? I do have a BDI audio cabinet on...

    Focal Aria 926 vs 936

    Hi all, I know this's been done many times before; the general consensus seems to be that it's worth it to pay more and get the 936 because it goes lower, however my room size is bang in the middle between the recommended minimum for the 926 and the 936 (23m2). Is the 936 too much for my room...

    Question Upgrade path for system with Focal Aria 948

    I've recently upgraded my speakers to Focal Aria 948. I still have old Monitor Audio FX as surrounds, but I'm planning to replace with Focal Aria 906 most likely. No subwoofer, had one, but sold after I got Arias. Maybe I'll add one again in future. Currently they are connected to AVR Onkyo...

    Question Focal Aria 900, or Dali Opticon 6, or Tannoy Revolution XT 5.0?

    Greetings, I am about to pull the plug on a new AV Amp, and have settled on the Yamaha 3060 as it seems to give me the right balance of attack/muscle, connectivity, and future proofing. I am upgrading from an Onkyo 1008. I have a dedicated HC room, approx 20' x 14' in size. I currently have...
