OK guys. Late night for the Deals. Arrived late yesterday afternoon. Thanks Roy and Alex for unloading. Hooked up system last night. CD player lost channel on way up from Fla. Ran to Walley World late in Sylva. Hooked up at 11 pm last night. All is good. Putting up blankets and tweaking the Soundfield Audio M1's. Sorry did not have time to visit last night. Will do that today.

Best sound at Carverfest is now in Loft #1. 8) :D :lol:

These "little" Roadshow Soundfiled Audio M1's are sounding pretty darn good despite the acoustic shortcomings in the Loft. The "vintage" 35 to 40 year old Marantz seems to provide plenty of grunt in this small setting. The built in amp providing power for the 8 inch sub enclosed within the cabinet certainly aids in this respect. John Maher was jamming earlier this morning with some nice blues and acoustic cuts.
