Stonehenge begins

Hey Marantzfan, just bought these off your friend in Goodyear.

Now I have fronts and surrounds. Time Windows move to the rear until I can find another pair.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Re: Stonehenge begins

Pair of AL-III Plus for $400. Everything in good shape and new foam for the ribbons. Auditioned them last night and bought. Pictures later.

Re: Stonehenge begins

It's kinda low WAF, but after the first two, what's a couple more. Actually my wife didn't mind them that much, because now she gets a new couch to replace the one seen in the picture (I love that couch, though — very comfortable). She said it makes the room seem much more like a real theater now (read, ugly).

Re: Stonehenge begins

I'm just finishing up Diana Krall's "The Girl In The Other Room" in 5.1 channel SACD. Sounds damn good. The 2 extra 10" woofers only operating below 150 Hz add a lot of punch. The Time Windows that used to be in those positions have a pair of 6½" woofers each, but the operate over a much wider range. Damn, ribbons are smooth!

Re: Stonehenge begins

yes, oh yes. they are sweet. if you happen to run across a set that you want to split, for center channel purposes, let me know. i am in need of them in golden oak though, instead of the black. i can't wait to get a oppo player and add the third pair to my setup as well. looking good in there. =D>
