Real nice system. Assembled very thoughtfully.

But, how can you stand the noise from the Twin Stores in you room?
Also, how long is your digital cable from the C15, which I think is in the far back corner?

Beautiful spks. A brand I'd like to try some day.

Very very nice Bro ...... You have set the bar again!

I'll be over HK on 17th thru 19th. If I have the time, I sure would love to listen to your system!

Congratulations. Now, get the Jorma's!

Previously you could hear the air being inhaled with the Stradivaris but now you see the pout, the licking of the lips, the swallow before the note etc. It really is incredible to hear all this detail.
Howie, careful how much you gush over the new speakers! We have some very sensitive members here!

Seriously though, congrats and enjoy!!! Awesome!

Congrats Howie! I have to say these fits better in your room.
Do try the Jorma. The speakers are wired with it. It should match very well.
