    Just wondering but what's the general thinking on new vs old speakers. For instance is an older 'top of the range' model still better than a current 'entry/mid' level speaker?

    I'm using a pair of 'Ruark Prologue One R's' at the mo and they're still going strong, I've got an option of switching to the 'AE Aegis Evo Three' which are like a third what I paid originally for the Ruarks. Would these 'blow away' my Ruarks or can 'older' still cut the mustard?

    I know I need to listen to them really but wondered what the general view on technology progress is etc.

    thx ppl
    Chris :thumbsup:

    Hi ya,

    I've got Ruark Broadswords in the main room, sold off as shop soiled and end of line at £275 ten years ago (list was then £650 ish).

    Two years ago I got a pair of MS speakers for the dining room. I don't even know which model, they just came from Richer Sounds and cost about £65.

    Sadly they sound better then the Ruarks most of the time (even before my son damaged them).

    You will only find out for sure with a proper dem, but there is a good chance you will find the modern ones to be better. Definately worth a try.
