To Jeff Fritz,
In your picks for speakers you would choose at $15k and under, here are three very worthy additions that fully compete with cost-no-object designs:
Legacy Focus HD and SE ($9k-$10k): Dollar-for-dollar, it may be the best value in all of high-end audio.
Legacy Signature SE ($6k): Similar to Focus in that it's an absolute full-range speaker for the audiophile without the sheer space for a larger speaker such as the Focus models.
Legacy Classic HD ($4k-$5k): Incredibly resolving loudspeaker that is on par with speakers such as Wilson Sashas, Aerial 20T, etc.
I think if you listen to any of these three speakers you would agree. I enjoy your writing!
Certainly a strong endorsement! I'd love to review one of these models and will contact the company and show them your letter. . . . Jeff Fritz
