    Well, I have KEF Q15's and Q300's - both were nice but missing something before. Now the Q300's are just WOW. there is more midrange and the sound is more balanced.

    I didn't have a pressing need for them so I didn't keep them but a pair of Linn Tukans were among the best speakers I've ever owned from about 200 Hz up.

    I ended up getting a pair of CDM1s for that small system and a pair of Linn Keilidhs for the bigger system. Both the B&Ws and the bigger Linns did many things well but there was something magical about those Tukans... maybe the room, maybe the exact setup. Hell, maybe my mood for the two weeks I had them but I wasn't much of a sub guy at the time and I wasn't willing to live without the bottom end.

    Ever since then (many years ago) I always though if I ever had to live in an apartment where bass was an issue, I'd grab a pair of Tukans,

    In my Room with the Pre/Amp setup, these speakers (Linn Tukans) are so dynamic. I was amazed. Class A really made those speakers shine. Also they weigh a lot for little speakers - 25 lbs for the pair.

    I tried my Single driver speakers, Zigmahornets and Tang Band D4-1's. The former actually sounded OK but a little shrill. The Tang Bands sounded like the Sonus Fabers. I was totally surprised. It could be the tubes. I will need to get some more tubes to try. Slippery slope time.

    I still have a few more speakers to try.

    I need to break out the Wheaties to try the Monitor Audio MA3 series 2's :D I will do that this weekend.

    Right now just enjoying the sound.

    Currently using JRiver 22 but have the license for the upgrade to 23 and will get that when it comes out. I am using EOS currently on my Android pad to control. I actually like this app. It is nice and slick.

    Still just chillin' with music. I never thought I could get this close to my perfect system.

    I noticed the power cord is a little stiff and a little thin. I was thinking of replacing it. Anyone do that on a Pioneer M-22?
