thanks for the reply - you used a great analogy to explain your speaker choice. Or as we say here - "horses for courses".
It's interesting but I like you have heard many different speakers and alot are or have been more "audiophile" but very few give me the musicality of the Harbeth's...abit like revisiting ESL57's driven by a tube amp.
Aren't the Leben's great? A friend reported great things with his 99db Hornings and the CX300.
I recently decoupled with Auralex Gramma's - work well but hideously ugly. I'll try the puck tweak.
