    I would have bought a pair of Avid Model 80 speakers back in the day but for the lack of genuine walnut cabinets, and a lack of $80. That, and they weren't designed by the renowned engineering team at LirpaLabs.

    I think I figured it out... Somehow it got bookmarked. Don't know how, but it did. It's a year-old discussion I had never seen before. Maybe the Vanilla Gods are telling me I should read up on the VDRS... :p
