Yes Beautiful set-up! I also like the rack, very different and I love how clean it looks the way the cabling is pretty much "out of the picture", that is hard to do with this much stuff. Great job!! \:D/

Need to. It handles the load of the Amazings well. It will give your speakers new life to the sound the emit. Bass will punch you. Experiment and have fun. Lifting the amp is no fun. :lol:

Those specs read pretty good. The only real difference is they go down to 25 hz & the old Perfects are good to 18 hz. Get a crossover & biamp; you could have a damn good sounding set!
