Thanks for the kind words of support for the review. Grunt is right that there are not many reviews of the M40ti's. If anyone comes across a used pair they are well worth picking up and checking out. At $150 of CL for mine they are definitely one of my all time best CL buys. The Anthem for $200 with original box in like new condition and $100 for the NOS tubes is still tops. The best part of the Anthem deal is the seller and I have become friends.
