Has anyone out there heard and Acoustic Energy AE-1 MK.II or in any way familiar with it? I know it's not a recent model- say maybe 5 or 6 years old model.

Thanks

I heard the original AE1s a great deal, and consider the best small speaker I have ever heard. Astounding dynamics, and a bass end that is unbelievable for the size of box. Bullet proof hardware too, these take a lot of abuse. I used to prefer the AE2s, but they didn't prove so popular. AE1s need really good stands though. AE used to sella stand that cost around 600 UKP!!!. I never bought a pair largely because of the high cost,, but I remain a fan of the design.
