the man is a genuis. he has allowed lower pay structured fellows to be able to enjoy some of if not the best of nice audio gear. like a carver A760x running a set of tympani 1B's next to a set of bryston 7B's and i couldn'y tell you which was which side by side. abd by the was the A760x and the brystons had been to their respective repair facilities, the carver went to Rita and the brystons went to mike up in canade and both were clead bill and in that sise by side i could not tell the difference. so the A760 i was attempting to sell earlier is no longer for sale. sorry all.
1,A-760x, 2, Sonics Asscts. from the IMAX theater 800x's these are the bryston 7B's but kicked up .i have added two bryston 7B's and a tfm-25 running through a Sunfire TGP I: and a Krell KAV 500i. 2, magnapan tympani 1 b's main-- 2 Polk rt 11t's secondary mains--2 Polk RT1000p's for centers and sub and one audiophile 10 cube subwoofer 2 Polk rti 150's running from the sevin axis connector just for more meat in the middle and 2 polk audio rt55i with changed crossovers from the polk audio RT3000p
