Title: ERRx or Omega S3HOXRS
Post by tooktheredpill on 06/24/18 at 01:17:05

Trying to decide between ERRx and S3HOXRS.
Have a 50W hybrid amp.
Any critical differences I should know about before I pull the trigger.
Thanks

Are you familiar with the radial sound presentation?  There ought to be a big difference based on that alone.

No more than what I've read. Pretty positive here on the threads.

I have the HR1s which are radial and with front drivers.  I love the radial sound but without the front drivers I don't know what I'd think.

I had the ERRís not the ERRx and I have the Omega S3HOXRS.  Canít categorically state go for one or the other.  But what I canít tell you is that give the S3HOXRS the right associated components and they will Ďmimicí the radial effect with added benefits.

With the ERRís I had the same components except the amp.  The amp that I had with the radials was a Cary Rocket 88R, with the Omegas I HAD :'( the UFO2.  So I canít make a direct comparison. I also did some work on the Caps and Resistors with the ERRís.

I loved the ERRís, forgiving speakers and impressive.  I donít miss them though.  The S3HOXRS are way FASTER, sneaky buggers, they love to mess with what you think you know.  That can make them more demanding, but theyíll reward in spades if you give them what they need to reward and if youíre patient during the burn in period.

Plus the Omegas are more efficient and were great with the UFO2, now I canít wait to get my A-Amp on them ::).

However donít take this to mean that Iím pitching the Omegas over the ERRx,  just trying to give you some idea of the differences so that you can try to determine the best fit for you.  Steve and others may be able to add to my comments and expand on the characteristics of the two.

tooktheredpill, what is your listening room size? I've read the ERRxs do much better in larger rooms than smaller rooms. Plus you need to have them several feet from the front and side walls.
