New - 2015 Affordable Accuracy Tower2 and Monitor2 by Philharmonic Audio
Dennis Murphy's cost for the Pioneer speakers he previously used for his Affordable Accuracy models went up and Dennis started looking for new economical platforms to work with.
1) He found the Dayton Audio T652 Tower... to which, he swaps out the tweeter, replaces the crossover with his own design, and adds bracing, The result is the Affordable Accuracy Tower2 at $180/pr (plus $32 shipping to GA).
2) He found the Dayton Audio BR-1 kit... which he assembles with his own crossover. The result is the Affordable Accuracy Monitor2 at $195/pr (plus $25 shipping to GA).
I was excited with the opportunity to audition both! One thing I have learned is that the human ear (mine, at least) is incredibly sensitive for relative (or comparative) measurement, but not so good at absolute measurement. Consequently, I decided to find appropriate speakers for comparison. The results of those comparisons follow.
