Hey again amvm73.  The imaging and soundstaging is very good (for the space).  I agree with you regarding the sidewalls, and Fred and I batted around room treatments but honestly I feel no current ...

To see and feel the music

Arthur, I still remember and enjoyed the sound of the Kora stereo amp that my friend loaned to me.  If they were not a danger to deal with and hard on tubes, I would consider owning them.  What a s...

Ha!  Yes I have.  As you can see, I had two rather oddball spaces to outfit and T&F offerings fit the bill with two very different speakers.  Bob at Profundo (the T&F distro) is a sliver to...
