Thanks guys for the welcome :)

No I never/ am not running the TFM's as Mono's...

At the time I got them, I was running the DQ-10, but only on one.
Since then, I have actually sold one...and am probably going to sell the other one to a friend,
cuz he needs one 'more than me' right now.

Right now I am using my B&K and my MKIII's
