    I just received the Audio Advisor catalog the other day and they have the A23+ and A21+ included now. Some significant improvements in power output, including getting the A21+ up to 300 watts per channel. Some cosmetic changes and better binding posts included now. Looks like a good update after many many years without changing anything.

    Audio Advisor is selling off the previous models for good prices. The new ones cost a LOT more than the old models. For example, the A23 was $995 and the A23+ is now $1495. If I was in the market right now, I'd pick up a new A23 for $799 while supplies last.

    I read about some of the changes earlier. Didn't know if anyone had compared the old to new versions.

    Heck of a deal on the originals, are a workhorse with a good following.

    I am also considering selling my Halo 21 (never used and still in original box, unopened) as well as an accompanying Halo JC-2 BP Preamp (while opened, but never used). Ready to make a deal that's below any current sales prices by a good $500 or so... not exactly a 'fire sale' but still a good value for both high end, complimentary pieces. Anyone interested, PM me...I'm about ready to list on Audiogon.

  • I have the A31 and it powers my front 703's. It is awesome.
