Maybe New York was just messin' with my head? Doesn't matter, I had fun.

Occupying the middle spot in the aimotiv lineup from Emotiva's Pro division, the airmotiv 5 is one of the larger speakers you'll see featured on this site.

Ed Note: I've long been enamored by the incredibly lifelike recordings produced by brothers David and Norman on their Chesky record label. They regularly put great musicians in great spaces, and deftly record the moment with minimal mikes and astonishing results.
