Bought a pr. of REXPower monoblocks. Cant wait until they get here!!! Hopefully be able to keep the stereo REXPower I have now and do some comparisons of what I've gained by going with monos.

Put the REX monoblocks in the system last night and listened for a couple hours. I'll listen a bunch today. Had a few issues but think I have them worked out. First thing I noticed was more bloom throughout than the stereo REX. Put some pop and rock on and noticed better attack and decay. Things seem a little more real than they did, and it was very good before. Things should really pick up today when I start spining vinyl.

I'll get my personal photographer (aka wife) on it and try to get them posted tonight.
Short story is with the YGA Carmels I'm using they provide a little more attack and decay and quite a bit more bloom, also seemd to be more relaxed. But in know way soft or slow sounding. A nice upgrade over one REX, oh yeah....they look really cool too.

As you might imagine, I am totally envious!

New setup - sounding great!

Sorry about all the cables - waiting awhile on longer power cords... Not sure why the system/amp pics are not coming up?
