As soon as I unboxed I played a few of my favorite albums.  Sade - Love Deluxe, Lady Blackbird - Black Acid Soul and Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

I was using KEF Reference 1s, which are a great 3 way speaker.  These aren't as analytical as the KEF and they dig deeper.  I  love how these reproduce vocals.   They have been playing nonstop.   I have owned Supercharged Songtowers and Silks and these are easily my favorites of the 3, hands down.

Those speakers are so ugly and I am sure they sound terrible. If you ever want someone to take them off your hands, let me know. HEHE :beer:

Hey!

    :lol: Be careful or you'll blow your ear drums out!

    Anyway, congratulation on the new speaker, looking good there.]

Congrats, they look beautiful and I'm sure sound even better! What wood finish is that, they offer so many options it can be hard to know for sure. Enjoy them in the best of health!

A question and a request:

1.  Did they arrive on the pallet via a commercial delivery truck or fedex/ups?

2.  Could you post more photos so we can really see the wood?

Thanks

This has got me very excited... my Koa Supercharged Song Towers, Center, and F12 should be shipping today!

I can post some pictures once they arrive if anyone may be interested.
