    Sounds fantastic regardless of the phone mic. We can tell how good it sounds!

    Sounds good! Nice NAD pieces, too. Who do you have playing? I don't recognize it, but I like it.

    Good luck with Irma - stay dry and safe!

    I'm amazed at the baas output of DCM's considering the smaller woofers these have.
    Very nice c5!

    LOL....same here, anyone that looks in my room see's pillows and blankets pinned to walls, speakers way out into the room......and it looks different every time they see it, If I try to talk about audio or room acoustics, they just look at me like I'm some kind of weirdo.....lol......so, I hang out here with you guys. :D

    Here's one from "The Great American Songbook" for your listening pleasure.... gdmoore28 has got me thinking about vocals, I wanted to see how they handled Rod Stewart's voice.
    I'm trying the speakers closer together, away from the side walls in this video.

    Thanks! Song is "Country Preacher" from Roy Buchanan.
    Thanks! I have very little exposure to DCM's and they were not on my radar. Feels like a good find at $25. I enjoy the sound they produce.

    I'm with you on the DCM's. Read about them here, big fan base. Found my TW's at a yard sale for 40 bux!
    Excellent speakers!

    Okay Mr. 70. I just have to say looking into your video gave me an instant flashback to shopping at Tech HiFi in my teens. The wall o' speakers with the sales person holding the wired A/B switch box for speaker comparing. Thank you for resurrecting such fond memories.

    For the last few months, I have been working at trying to turn a dirty, wet, FUGLY, bare-bones 50 year-old basement into a somewhat respectable mancave/lounge type of deal (and on a tight budget, as well....good thing I already had all the equipment). Still got a bit to go, but it`s coming along nicely....

    That's nice to hear, thanks! I really enjoy listening to the differences in the speakers. When I demo them for friends, they didn't realize how different they can sound. Love the variety!

    Nice cave there Maxx! Looks like a fun place to hang, listen to music and kick back a few cold ones!
    So I assume the "wet" basement issue is a thing of the past? What did you do to eliminate it?
    Cheers, Glenn

    They handle Rods voice quite well!

    Thank you, Sir !
    I wirebrushed the walls, sealed `em up with DryLok, ripped out the 4 old windows, reframed everything and installed new windows, rewired to give me several new electrical outlets (there was only ONE outlet for the entire basement !) put 2 new sump pumps in (the old ones were shot), used an old 1950s Sears electric floor scrubber to scrub the floor about 5 times, then put concrete sealer on it. Did a little creative mangling to the ductwork so I now have both heat AND AC down here ( :) ), and installed a big-ass Santa Fe dehumidifier that I brought from my previous house. Still have to do some work on the outside, have to put in new window wells and add some fill to pitch the rainwater down away from the foundation....like I said, it`s a work in progress....

    A lot of necessary work, for eliminating mold, and a nice usable space!
    Luckily, I'm on a hill on high ground and my basement is dry.
    Cheers and happy listening!
