Sure will Ford, and BTW, the other 'stuff' will be a few more days. I didn't order the 80s yet.

I did connect the 60s to the Rotels, wow is all I can say!

Nope, to be honest I really wasn't expecting much of a difference but I am really surprised, the clearity is amazing and I can tell that these are just begging for the 80s...although the 60s really sound incredible.

Seems like the Rotels really get going with some power, I cranked them up for a few minutes (wife is home) and man they were not bashful about giving you all the clear, crisp sound you want. SRVs 'Little Wing' from the Essential was the first song played. Incredible!

What's your player? If you say the RCD-1072 I'm really going to hate you.

Sorry, I've been gone for a few days and am a little behind on my reading:
Just to be clear, are you saying that your M60s sound better through your Rotel stuff than whatever you were using previously?

Nope, actually it's a Sony RCD-W500C/W100 cd player/recorder. I have the Rotels and the cd player on the den floor in front of the HT system for access to the pair of 60s. I did this just to hear the Rotels, whenever the 80s get here the whole music system will go in the living room. I am amazed by the sound so far, I'm not believing the clarity.

Mark, I'm running the 60s with an H/K 635, ran them through the smaller Onkyo and yes the Rotels, to me, (and my wife) the sound is quite a bit more clear and crisp. We had the 60s at 100 db a little ago and the feel in the upper torso was complete bliss, the sound wasn't (again, to me) nearly as crisp and clear with H/K. But, for the difference in price and through the research I expected it to be better. I wasn't disappointed.

Most often for me it's overwhelming with all of the techincal details, but sometimes ignorance is bliss. I'm hearing a difference with nothing but my own pair of ears.
