Also, get a set of stillpoints SS for them. It tamed some of the brightness and opened up the mid bass on mine.

Are you using the long or short ports?

Volks, How's the Hana settling in now?

You have a beautiful setup. Sorry to hear about the demise of the MT5. Just my 2 cents, but a VPI Titan would look spanking cool in that space.
