Wayne, I'm just talking about something better than a Carver TFM15cb or an old Sears CDP that will not already be spoken for in a rig at the 'fest..... ](*,)

Yeah right. I believe that like I believe that Bill doesn't drink. :D

For these? I'll bring my Dodd Audio pre-amp and my Musical Fidelity A3cr amplifier.

Properly setup, the timing and overall sound is incredible. That said, they do have to be properly setup. One 1/4 of an inch off and they are useless IMO.

What kind of wattage do they handle? I could bring 2 QSC RMX 2450's each bridged into a 4 ohm load is 2400 watts that should make them sing LOUD and CLEAR. I bought the pair of them to play my Carver Amazing Originals.

I think they just may sound a wee tad better than 130 Watts of Solid State power! :D :D :D But that is just my opinion... 8)

Keep your fingers crossed.

Oh, I agree completely. Thing is, I have to "sell" or "pitch" what we plan on hooking these up too to Dustin. He's not the easiest sell in the world so I'm trying to get the game plan together so that I am prepared when he calls. He's all about what he sells and he frowns on anything that he doesn't. He is one of "those guys". [God, I hope he's not reading this or our chances of having them at the 'fest are blown] [-o<

I told Jim we might have a full set of MIT cables available to hook them up with and what gear this will be featured against and without hesitation, he said that we definitely qualify to have them there......it all boils down to Dustin and if I can sell him on the idea. If he OK's it? We are golden and they will be featured. You guys have no clue what I have been through just to get to this point. Keep your fingers crossed and [-o<
