Philip Beaudette has posted a review of the AAD Silver Reference 7 loudspeakers ($5000/pair) at SoundStage! Hi-Fi. His conclusions:
I’m sold on Phil Jones’s belief in the virtues of using multiple small mid/woofers to produce not merely enough but voluminous low-end output. This, married to a clean, open midrange and an extended top end, makes the Phil Jones Pure Sound Silver Reference 7 a well-designed, superb-sounding loudspeaker that will no doubt win the attention of audiophiles looking for a reference speaker in the area of $5000/pair.

In the right room, with good (or great) electronics, the Silver Reference 7s could easily lay the foundation for a high quality of sound that would provide many years of listening pleasure.
