    Thanks. They are indeed quite awesome! Some amazing technology for the price for sure. Wish I still had space for them. I'm sad to see them go, but they should be bringing someone joy instead of sleeping in boxes.

    I would highly recommend it if you have the means brother! The first time I put a quality signal into them and got them positioned properly -- just WOW!!

    If you are serious, I'd be happy to bring them up for a demo in your space sometime. Of course we may need extra time to hang with each other's Dingwalls and bass rigs too :cool:

    Let's chat over PM.

    In may be putting these back in their velvet bags to box up for another period of hibernation. Maybe I'll have the space again one day...

    Let's talk -- I think I can swing these. I forget where you live. I'm on the road the next day or so -- can I bother you to start up a PM with me and we'll hash out detail?
