I ended up driving to the shipping warehouse in Round Rock to pick these bad boys up! I’m impatient and didn’t want to wait another two days until they got a truck with a lift gate. I’m glad I did! These are the most unusual speakers I have owned. A complete different beast compared to your average speaker. When the power supplies and amp warm up… look out! Insane realism, resolution and low distortion. Not the best speaker for the Rock and Roll set, but if you are into acoustic and simply recorded music, you are in for a treat! I have another 289 hours of break in to go! Once they’re settled in, I’ll be having a Hootenanny!
