Default Amati tradition vs rock and modern music

What do you think about Amati Tradition for rock and modern music?

I listen to music like Fogerty, Volbeat, Country and some modern music.
No classical, jazz or rap.

Does Amati play that well and give me that live feeling or should i look more at brands like Klipch and Jbl with bigger drivers.

I have Futuras and they can rock. I’ve heard the Tradition as well, and they’re great all-round speakers. I would argue that in modern speakers the size of the driver is less important than the speed and extension. Multiple smaller drivers can produce good, clean, fast, articulate bass. However, if you’re in the market for new and rock is pretty much all you listen to, there are plenty of other options. Wilson certainly comes to mind.

If I mainly listened to rock, I would look at Legacy Audio speakers like the Focus or Aeris. My good buddy is a die-hard rocker. He had Signature III, and now has Focus. They do rock much better than my Wilson Sasha's, my Amati Futuras, and my Stradivaris. You don't get the looks of Sonus Faber, nor the technology of Wilson, but Legacy speakers are a good value. They definitely rock!

I listen to all kinds of music so my Amati Traditional are perfect. The classic is B&W / McIntosh for rock. My audio guy has just hooked up the new (I think) 800’s and wants me to experience the raw power and bass.. for the experience... if we had multiple rooms for audio in my house... then maybe one would be for this.
