Thanks again.

These speakers are incredibly easy to position as there is no rearward facing port or drivers et al. On the back is a toggle to allow one to dial in more or less bass depending on the room. Right now I have it at Zero but intend to play with it once I am familiar with the sound a bit more.

Congrats Howie,

You've managed to find a pair of speakers that look just as beautiful and refined as the rest of your gear, even the amp... Marten speakers are special... can only imagine it sounds just as beautiful.

Graham
