Sanky,

I have seen few threads in forum,where our FM had brought Emotiva Amps and haven't came across anything on Speakers.

Also the Emotiva Speakers are not quite impressive for it money, i believe.SWANS should win the league for its performance,Style look ,cost and available with warrenty)with no competition IMHO

Lets see, what does others say

sound and music will become famous soon enough
Re: EMOTIVA vs SWAN vs AUDIOENGINE

I bought Audioengine A 2 (some 4 years ago) and Swan M200 MKII (5 years)/D1080MKII (2 years). I sold off AE within a month (not that they sound bad but they can't compete with Swans in midrange and vocals). No match at all. A2s distort sound at moderate levels and are only suitable for small places.

Swans are more suited to my musical tastes and preferences. Also their build quality is superb with classy finish. M200 are about 12 kgs while 1080 about 9 kgs.

Swans are still with me. I am using M200 in my office and D1080 in my bedroom. I have not sold them despite tempting offers from many forum members.

I am not sure whether the Indian distributor of Swan sells these 2 models here. But I saw it at another forum that someone (based in Gwalior) was planning to sell these in the Indian markets. Don't have details but you could check on the net.
