    I can sell you some Greg Straley reality cables that I got from @tonyb that are too short for my current setup. They were the best cables I've tried so far.

    Not sure if he used them in his main system or not before he sold them to me.

    If you wanted to you could ask him about them in that system and send me a PM if you are interested.

    Thank you for the info Tony. Are you using a specific brand of speaker cable?

    I use Acoustic Zen Satori speaker cables and AZ Matrix 2 interconnects to the amp. I've found this to be a very good fit for these speakers.

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for the cable info. I sent you a PM.

    Hoping the system allowed my account to deliver it to your inbox.

    Thanks!

  • I will Tony! Thanks for the help loading them into my car. You are indeed a great guy!

    Forgot to ask, did you use any specific product to clean the wood or a towel and water was enough?

    Thanks again!

    You can use any furniture polish but not the ones with heavy chemicals. Usually the better products are safer. Lemon oil makes them shine but it isn't the best for the finish. Just a damp rag around the drivers to keep dust off.

    Did your wife crap her pants when she saw them ?

    I should rephrase that, normally if a cleaner/polish is good for fine furniture, it should be ok for speakers. I used weinmans once in a while. I also never kept them in direct sunlight. If you let sun light hit them daily you'll definitely start seeing fading on the finish.

    I also had rules, for the wife....nothing goes on top of the speakers. Women love to put stuff on open spaces, flowers/pictures/etc. No drinks, no kids throwing toys around are allowed in the same room. Nobody was allowed to control the volume dial either but myself. You have to be able to recognize when your putting stress on speakers. These can fool you as with the right associated gear they will play loud and clear without fatigue.

  • Thanks for the advice Tony! My wife was indeed surprised about the size but also intrigued about the sound.
    We had to visit some friends this weekend, so I am starting the cleaning tonight.

    Thanks again and wish you recover from your adverse situation as soon as possible.
