Those looks great. When researching I did not notice the rear firing speaker. Hum

Roy, no that a passive radiator used instead of a port. Passive radiators are much better than ports, IMO.

Tom, :D

Tom, no. He's been using Usher's, but the last time I was over he didn't have any speakers hooked up, just the headphones.

Headphones? #-o

Oh well, got some good reviews from his Usher's. Good luck on scraping up the dough Jesse. If you get them, I'll be looking forward to hearing the office rig again! Maybe I was thinking of BlueMDPicker's rig....somebody up there has a pair.

Yes passive is much much better than ported, I agree. Thanks F1

Souns Faber is one of my favorite speakers! For $3K, there is no BS in that speaker.

Nice speakers, I like the stands, gives me an idea of making a set of stands similar to that for my Polk Audio 5B's.
