I just joined the IMF owner's club, with a beautiful pair of ALS40-II's. You can read some of the details in this other (high traffic) thread: http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/hk-730-meets-imf-als-40ii.752099/#post-10224071 I am driving the speakers with a sweet little McIntosh 754 power amp, and using a NuForce DAC as a pre-amplifier. The combination sounds really good and, as many of you have noted, these speakers produce an amazingly rich and detailed bass. I am, however, a little disappointed by the upper midrange. When I pulled the covers, I found that the foam surrounds on the midrange drivers had hardened and cracked. From what I have seen on the web, this appears to be a common problem. I have re-foamed drivers before, but I am away from home and would prefer not to sink the time into repairing components, so I will play a long shot. Does anybody here have a pair of re-foamed midrange drivers for sale? If so, would you take my pair in partial trade?
