Thought I'd share my most recent purchase. I'm certainly not as much of an audio connoisseur as many of you are, I usually hunt down cheap audio bargains, rebuild them and make due with what I have on a meager budget, rarely splurging on this hobby... until I spotted these on a classifieds site. Now I've never seen anything quite like these, but I was drawn to them, their shape, the finish, the unique speaker array and incredible build quality. Without rationalizing I immediately e mailed the owner and set up a time to make my hour long journey to pick them up. On the way home I had time to rationalize my purchase, and remorse set in, I honestly knew nothing about these and had no idea what to expect... I lugged them into the house, connected them to my 1250, and pressed play, and at that moment, everything melted away. My ears took over all senses and it was like I was hearing on a different level, they sent shivers and goose bumps through me with how silky smooth they were at every frequency... Keep in mind I'm used to listening to mid tier speakers, but these have shown me a whole new level of sound, and I'm hooked!
