    Got a chance to fire them up. All I can say is WOW! They are particularly suited to strong recordings where particular instruments or vocals are emphasized (e.g. Chris Botti, Diana KrawI, Tony Bennett) They remind me of my Klipschorns without the need to shove them into a corner. At the moment I am powering them with my Sansui Au-999, but I'll switch to my Dynaco MkIII mono blocks as I think they would benefit from that tube sound. The highs and mid are accentuated so I changed out the crossover capacitors replacing them with Solens. That seems to have mellowed them a bit. I'll post pics this weekend. I really can't believe what great condition they are in! Thanks for all the feedback. I can honestly say that I am very impressed with the sound them and they look so cool! These are definitely keepers!
