Great album! I especially like the wall of Amazings. I "need" some Silvers or Plats, but have no idea where they'd go.

Looks like at one point or another, you've torn into every aspect of your speakers. They must all sound simply amazing now, pun was intended:)

Picked up a pair of SDA2Bs locally and after a bit of reconstruction, cleaning, and detailing, they are in the system. Looking forward to some listening later today.
Well I got some fun stuff coming myself for us to play with. I got a set of Audioquest speaker cables and some MIT EXp1 interconnects along with the signal cable and the spikes (which actually will work with your SDA's since they are polk :D )

You are right Gary, I've had them out in the room and wow! I'm just too much of a tweaker and love ALL of my gear, all in one room.
