    PolkAudioJoJo, you've been nothing but trouble from jump. If you don't stop now I will make sure you are gone. I hope that's clear enough.

    Everyone else, let's get back on track.

    Really looking forward to seeing, and hearing, one of the two-way bookshelf models when the opportunity presents itself. That's a hot market segment for high value, high performance loudspeakers (IMO, albeit my expertise in modern tastes is a bit limited ;) ).

    Sixty eight years old and I just learned something new today. It's a great day! Who would have known.

    Sixty six years old, and I agree with you....although I did have a pre-release copy of a Beatles single in 1965.

    A twerp, a person whom f-arts in the bathtub and bites the bubbles.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    Although some might have put them there, I don't believe that the LSIM series were delegated as man cave speakers. :/

    Well I have a number of educated, relatively affluent married friends that love music, and exactly one of them has tower speakers in the living area (my bro in law). None of the rest even have bookshelf speakers. One has in wall, one a sound bar, the rest Bluetooth speakers. So, ya know, know your audience and all that jazz...

    I did a google search a few years back of the 50 best classical music songs and that was one of them. I went to my local library and was able to collect a vast majority of those 50 songs and made a 2 CD compilation album of classical music. Whenever I have a lady friend over for sexy time, I play that song for the humor. It softens the mood. After that I always hear Simon Cowell's buzzer sound.
