I started out with a Blues genre shuffle, and then basically just started running through a playlist of favorites. It was everything... rock, blues, gospel, rap, r&b... tried it all and it all was amazing.. really fabulous.. love these speakers... then I had to go out of town and just got back... they're back in action now!

Have you played around with spread, listening distance and toe in? My K3's call for 0 to 5 degrees of toe in but I find I need a smidge more than that.

Toe in: Just a bit but not seriously at the moment. I wanted to let them break in a bit more first, it's on the agenda though!

Spread and listening distance: That is pretty much done just from past experience and room dimensions.

Last night I noticed the image start to come through, which hadn't been there previously, so I think they are starting to break in!

small update, probably 30% broken in now and these speakers are really starting to open up. The sound is really fantastic across all genre's. I just picked up the PrimaLuna EVO 100 DAC to replace an older DAC so things are starting to get interesting.

Might play around with some vinyl tonight.

Nothing but ear to ear grins here, thank you so much Ivan for the killer deal on these speakers. Far and away have exceeded every expectation I had.

Very nice setup, almost looks like 'black' lighting from back in the day. Enjoy it in the best of health!
