    I've really enjoyed the Cerwin Vega's I've had here. I like BASS. :D

    That receiver looks GREAT. B)

    Where will the sale be held?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I picked up some gear and am setting up a vintage system in a small area in my basement. Found an old butcher block counter top and turned it into a rack to house everything. Walls are still bare but at least it's a start.

    Looking for advice on the 7b's. The cabinets are rough so I was contemplating putting veneer on them. Not sure if I want all the wood matchy matchy. What wood and color should I stain them?

    Hi Tony,

    The sale will be here in Nashville... probably in Oct. The Onkyo receiver is certainly shippable...the HED/CV speakers, not so much. Those are quite big and DEEP. I can take pics of them if needed.

    I mean... I'd suggest painting it all black... but... well... you know...

    Actually joking aside that's not a bad idea! Already enough wood in there. Maybe I'll try a black vinyl wrap on them.
