I've had it on for about an hour, listening to a variety of music... has a very real sound, little details mainly. Bass is perfect, strong but not bloated and well balanced through the entire range. WOW, the flute just started playing from Mark Knopfler's "Get Lucky" and it's in the room here with me... :D :D :D I likey, I likey a lot!!! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

I made sure it went to a good home where it will be appreciated, right here in the family. I'm not a collector, I just enjoy trying it all out and taking lots of pictures for the scrap book. :D :D

Yeah, I just I noticed how good its sounds more now that I unplugged it and pulled it from my system!! ](*,) ](*,) I was perfectly happy before it arrived, it'll just take a moment to get use to it again. :( :( :(
