    Figured that a proper evaluation of @GlennDog Cary Pre-Amp would take at least 5 years to complete! :smile:wdxunuem577b.jpeg
    Edited to say just kidding! :smile:
    Old Pic: I like that amp stand on the left. In 2-3 years I’ll be in the market for several, inexpensive (2 each) 1, 2 & 3 tier stands. I confess being thrifty, most everything I’ve seen seems pricey and, because the correct word escapes me, glitzy.

    I picked up a pair of 703’s and I’ve been burning them in.

    Almost done with the diy stands.

    Glad you are enjoying them! I had the DM 2/6, the Excite X14, and the Focus 260. All were very enjoyable and superb sounding speakers.

    I had about 5 hours on them by remembering to go down there and restart the cd, but finally figured out the repeat option on my new-to-me Cambridge, lol, so the hours will pile on now. :)
