Loc: It's all about the location.
They also place a wreath on your head made from a large French cruller.

The bookshelf vp100 might be ok. The in/on-wall 100 removes all of the bottom end from the vocals making them sound thin and lifeless. More of a TV speaker sound that doesn't match the rest of the system. I've got an M2 on order that will be replacing it and hoping that this will correct that problem.


I found mine to be unequal in quality to the bookshelves too, but just when I was thinking I'd send it back it improved. I'm not sure what changed, but it got a lot better. I'm positive it wasn't all in my head. Maybe the positioning shifted slightly (it's not mounted permanently yet).

I'm not really expecting to ever use it for music - I listen to stereo exclusively - so for me I think it'll do the job just fine. Especially since I don't have the option of a regular bookshelf center in this room.

After they were played on my gym's system, I looked into the Silversun Pickups. I've got my Grado SR60s at work, and when my 11 AM patient cancelled, I watched/listened to several of their videos on youTube. Like.

Also, after looking them up on Amazon and seeing what other items customers purchased, I listened to several Phoenix songs. Also very good.

Sonofagun, there is new music out there that's good. I just have to have more patients cancel so that I can find it.

JP, just apply the Geico approach. You don't need any patients in your office; I'd think that you could be fully occupied here in diagnosing the sudden disastrous increase in multiple personality disorders which has struck us.

Last night I was listening to my buddy's Pioneer CS 603 speakers. He got them in the early 1980s when he was in the Navy. Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack and the When Pigs Fly album of cover oddities were played during our Scrabble game.

What did you think about the speakers J.P.?

I had a pair of Pioneer CS 922a's from back in the day and really liked 'em.

Sonically they wouldn't compare to the M80s but for sentimental reasons I sure wouldn't mind having then now though.

Rasputina - Great American Gingerbread

I'll need more time with it, but it has its moments. Not that I was expecting to be blown away, considering it's a rarities compilation. It also came with a live DVD, so I'll have to check that out this weekend.
