  • Nice setup, enjoy it! What kind of stuff do you work on there?

  • I am seriously thinking about the Monitor Audio Bronze 2s, but I don’t know if they will be able to hold up in my room without a sub or not. Any suggestions for a good affordable sub? Budget would probably be around $400, but once again, I don’t kno…

  • By the way, how do you guys feel about Dali and SVS? I’ve heard that both make great stuff, but I don’t really know much about either. (Other than SVS’ subs of course, I know all about them )

  • mhardy6647 wrote: » Those Sansui quad receivers go for stoopit money. Oh yeah, they had $500 or something on them! And someone bought one while I was there... pretty crazy if you ask me. Not that they are bad receivers, but $500??
