Awesome!

Any pictures of the delivery, hauling into the house, your wife's "raised eyebrow," unboxed speakers, etc?

Will be revisiting many CDs over the next bit it would seem.

That sounds a lot like stinkeye. Glad they made it to ya before the weekend. Enjoy

PS : We expect a full review with pictures as well.

Some pix.
Here's when the first came in the house. Crappy photo.


Here's a picture of the boxes after they're unpacked. The cabinet behind is 56" tall.


Here's a quick pick of me working on installing an outrigger.


Here's a comparison in size between the PSB Image T5 (older model) and the M100.


Here's the M100 in place with all grills on.


Stripping off the top grill.


Stripping off the middle grill.


And finally, completely naked.


The upgraded system.
