    Sooooo….How are you liking the Electra's?

    Muy Bueno!

    At first I wasn't sure, I definitely was impressed with just how good the Lsim705's are in that this wasn't the slam dunk at first listen I was expecting... But in the end, I believe these are definitely keepers.

    The older Electra’s are ok. I really wish you could have grabbed stangmans Arias for 1750$ they are exceptional, I think they sound like baby kantas. I’ve heard a lot of the focal line. The Aria is a giant killer speaker! I have them, and new Electra’s. The Electra’s being superior. If Sh$t hit the fan, I would be totally ok living with the Arias. They are super good! Not to mention easy to drive.

    I know you put a hard stop at $1500, but, just a few hundred more would get you a really nice pair of Usher MD2's. I know a guy that can hook that up.

    LOVE my MD2's. I don't see them leaving my house for a very long time. As a matter of fact, they may carry me out of the house before the speakers leave :#:D
