    I like it a lot. ;)

    Makes me want to go put in "Night Fly" and see where the people are in the presentation. But my space isn't quite right yet.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    This review makes me like my MD2's even more. ;) Granted, they're no Volterra, but not many speakers are. Maybe if I come into a boatload of money someday I will own a pair. Until then, I'll just enjoy them on occasion at Skip's and Marvin's (if I'm invited). :D

    FYI: I believe* Skip and I listened to a pair of these powered by my Dayens Ecstacy and it was very, very nice. Just wanted to throw it out there that you don't have to have high end gear for these to sound great.


    * Please correct me if I am mistaken Skip. I know we listened to a few pairs on the Ecstacy and I thought one was the Volterra.

    Very well done.

    I wish I could communicate like you do.

    Sadly, I'm more of a "here's the power button and volume knob" only kind of guy.
