Since my “new” Apollo 11’s were demo speakers in a previous life, I don’t know how much actual breaking in has occurred, but I can say that I am enjoying them more and more each day.  As I am able to get around to listening to more favorite and familiar recordings I find myself sinking further into the music rather than thinking about the playback system.   These speakers are a dramatic step up, and I’m really glad I overcame any slight reservations I might have had about upgrading.  You’re next, Asghar  :lol:

for some reason I am not able to upload my pictures of the new set up on AC. but as an update I am using the Poseidon in my HT system for now to break in the new tweeters , I have noticed that after about 30 +plus hours they seem to open up and are much more smoother , Lou tells me that it would take up to 200 hours for them to really break  in  :popcorn:

Alan may be right, I lost my gallery and pictures were lost in some of my posts.

My wife's info will be forwarded so you can repeat the above statement.  When that is done you can select a cd or cable of your choice.  She told my attorney then were scattered about by the trash cart.

Trying to keep things fresh and varrued for the neighbors who usually see us for weekends only.  Who knew things happened through the week. 

I actually had one couple down the street ask where I was laid off from?  I replied it was my bad for not checking the schedule for the last eight years for a start time.

She brought us a casserole the next day to help out.

Yikes

In about two weeks, along with the new prices. Sorry but our costs have gone way up and I have not raised prices in at least three years.

Pleasantly surprising and a bit counter-intuitive (and thanks to audiotom posting his experience) the Apollo 11's seem to acoustically fit my slightly asymmetric mid-sized room better than the Ulysses.  In addition to playing "big", the stereo image is more centered and the sweet spot is larger.  I don't notice much if any difference in bass quality or quantity, though, but that has not been a problem with any speakers I have used in the last 10-12 years; perhaps more listening time on a broader selection of source material will change that.

Wonderful to hear that the Apollo 11s are magic to your ears

It sounds like your encouraging wife is enjoying them also

I promised Lou a review but I’ve been oh so busy listening
