    I went from Sierra-1NrT to the Sierra-2 for home theatre and I think it's worth it.

    I would say that of all the different speakers we currently manufacture, the least finicky with regard to placement would be the Sierra-2. The RAAL ribbon used in the '2 has exceptionally wide and linear horizontal dispersion. It is very spacious...

    Concur. I liked the upgrade so much I pretty much immediately ordered some towers too

    I have the Sierra-1 NrT's and the Sierra-2, I have not heard the Sierra-1's. With the sale right now on the Sierra-2 natural/piano black, it's a no brainer for me to spend the extra $190 for a pair of Sierra-2's. The RAAL tweeter is so much faster and articulate, displaying more dynamics and control. The midrange and bass is tighter if not as deep. At $500 per pair difference between the 1/2, I don't know if you're getting 40% more performance. The nice thing though is that Dave built the Sierra-2's so that you can upgrade the 1's when you have the budget. I don't think you can go wrong either way as all the speakers are neutral and sound 10x better than it's pricepoint. It's a matter of what you're used to... ignorance is bliss. Personally... once hearing the RAAL tweeter, it's hard to go back.

    I read this post: http://forum.ascendacoustics.com/sho...4538#post54538 and am wondering if getting up and walking around with the s2 is better sounding than the 1 or 1-nrt. I noticed the bstock s1 with nrt upgrade is virtually as much as the s2 bstock so it's a tough choice for someone who's never heard either.

    Sierra-2's have MUCH wider horizontal and more linear horizontal dispersion than the Sierra-1 NrT. The 2's definitely sound better than any comparable dome when walking around the room.
