Feel free to mention it, but watch out for viruses.

The thing is, if you give yourself time to adjust, you're just testing one remembered perception against another. You're not really comparing the speakers (says the person who just did exactly what he's advising against...)


Ahh, that's why we are disagreeing with each other. I am not talking about comparing the two speakers at this particular point. I am talking about taking some time to get used to listening to them, play some different types of music (good sources), evaluate over time. This way you will get to hear a lot of different types of music, different sounds, different frequencies. In short, extend the test drive so you get a good feel for them.

Sorry to confuse.

Not only viruses, but a lot of the music you get might be of low quality. In general, the music downloading community wants quantity not quality.

Yeah, but then your speakers smell like lutefisk.

And no one, but no one, wants their speakers to smell like lutefisk.

Perhaps, but as long as I can imagine my mains look like Marie Serneholt & Sara Lumholdt I’m ok with that.

Yes I totaly agree... but alot of the stuff I'm downloading has a bitrate higher than 900 or more. I look for files with flac codecs.
The Limewire I'm using I purchased and seems to be be bullet proof thus far; not to say something won't get by. That's the chance I'm willing to take. Also, the computer I'm using doesn't have anything that is a "must keep".

I would like to buy a Anthem MCA 30 amp to add to my Nad T765.
Wonder if that would be a good combination?

I've owned an Anthem MCA 20 in the past and it worked very well. The parts are top notch and the heat sinks are enormous and keep it cooled very well. I also had an Anthem PVA 7 that had the same quality, just less power. Anthem is a great brand, and you'll pay for it.

I bought my amps used for a very reasonable price and then sold them 2 years later for more than I paid. That might be an option for you.
