Nicely written Steve. I was wrong. There was a good reason to keep this thread open just a little longer.

I don't believe that there is such a thing as "the best speaker" anymore than I believe there is such a thing as a "best car". It varies by individual.

Now please excuse me as I have to get ready for the arrival of a dumpster smile

I don't believe there's "the best anything" either. Goes hand-in-hand with being an atheist.
Does a dyslexic atheist not believe in dog?

He's been blessed with a strong will and attitude, as well as an excellent support group though.

We don't need many posts here. Pick from one of these because that's all you need!

1. Should I get M60 or M80. Answer: Get the M80.
2. Should I get the M3 or M22. Answer: Get the M60. Someone will make the appropriate response to that suggestion.
3. Should I get an outboard amplifier? Answer: all well designed solid state amps sound the same. Just use your receiver.
4. I think receiver x sounds better than receiver y. Answer: All well designed receivers should sound the same. Therefore, there is no difference and you only think you hear a difference
5. Should I get x brand cables or interconnects. Answer: use shoe laces. All cables sound the same.
6. I heard a tube amp that sounded beautiful. Should I get a tube amp? Answer: Tube amps are distortion generators. You only thihnk you liked the sound of a tube amp. Get a nice transistor amp and they all sound the same.
7. I thought I bought a V3 but they sent me a V2. Answer: There is no difference.
8. Should I upgrade to a V3? Answer: Oh yes. V3s enjoy superior sound quality.

That should do it.

When did we get a FAQ started around here? Sticky!

We could all use a sticky FAQ now and then.
