Default Sasha 2's on the way!

Well ... been considering new speakers for several months now. Finally took the plunge on Friday and ordered a pair of Wilson Audio Sasha 2's. Listened to the Yvette but the Sasha 2 is still at a different level as it produced a much larger sound stage and seemed much more relaxed and natural. Should take about a month I understand. Saturday bought my wife a new car so seems like we're even!

Very nice George and congratulations on the Sashas'. The color w/the black grills will look great too.

Pretty smart cookie too -- taking care of the misses first; but, you may have leverage remaining for wire.

Best Sir,

Bob

P.S. Guess Marc was using a iPad and or iPhone apps. Apparently when one does, the signature equipment profile isn't visible.
