    Ultimately... the point is that the method of conveyance of the medium shouldn't be question, but rather the medium itself. The end goal is the enjoyment of a musical experience, or performance if...

    I have my Rosewood P3ESR's in my smaller second bedroom/vinyl lounge which is a 12x10 room.. and it works fab ! Probably the best speaker I've had in that room, civilized to a "T" and yet speaking...

    The Canadian Distributor is doing the Foundation Stands. I have them for my SHL5's. With my previous M30's (not the 30.1) I found the Skylan Stands were superior. On my SHL5's I'm finding the...
