    There is that -- actually the Technicses get loaned out on occasion, so they do get the occasional twist.

    Gorgeous. I have the 704 version of that arm, and they are true works of art!

    I noticed you have a Shanling CD player. I have one of their portable digital audio players (DAP), and it sounds quite good. I had no idea they made higher-end components.

    That's pretty phat, Luthor! What material is that platter?

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    I for one, hate using spring clips for speaker wires.
    Good job on that worthwhile project.

    It looks like you have the amperage to drive them.

    That's cool how the flood/spot lights can't shine their light on all of those towers and bass cabinets fronts. Man are they BIG!

    Congrats!

    Thanks Tony, yes it takes a lot of amp to drive these..they are the lowest sensitivity speaker I have ever owned, but with the right power, they really shine.

    Thanks, Harry, the only problem is it is a lot to move around to listen to other speakers in my rotation.

    I’ve been lusting over a set of Infinity QLS-1’s for many years, and I finally fulfilled my dream of getting a pair. I was fortunate to find a set that was completely restored...16i5nscfzmsz.jpeg

    That setup is just scary looking WOW!!
