    We are having another gathering tonight, let’s hope we get work done rather than drinking and listening

    It seems you need a better general contractor in this instance. You my friend just do not have the JUICE to get the job done. You had better either step up or put the little lady in charge of the refreshments. Once the new speakers are in place then refreshment will be served.

    Power the system down, and disconnect the old speakers before anyone arrives. Don't turn it back on until the new speakers are in-place.

    His old Magicos are pretty heavy too though, he may need help moving those around as well.

    Just disconnect the cables...thinking that could be done without actually moving them, but that may be a bad assumption on my part.

    Well...at least the PJs are different.

    Do you have a wood-burning fireplace???

    Congratulations!

    I presume that the coiled speaker cables is just temporary? Those are some mighty fine lookin' speakers, if I do say so myself. Sexy, if you will.

    If I kneel in front of one of them, they still sound complete

    I need a little more time with them but I can say they sound better than anything I’ve had before thus far and it’s not tuned to the room yet.

    Better than the SF Strads, Rockport Avior, BW 802d3, BW 802d2, Focal Kanta 2, Sonus Faber Olympica 3.

    I have a dealer looking at one issue, stay tuned.

    Interesting cable riser, where did you buy it from? Were they expensive?
