When I called and talked to Frank about amps and preamps last fall, he steered me toward the DM225's and the Vision SLR w/phono, so this thread is not asking for my feedback, but...  When Frank asked me what I was thinking about in terms of speakers and I told him, he (somewhat firmly) suggested I look at Philharmonic Audio, which I did.  Frank and Dennis (the designer and brains behind Philharmonic) go back a ways.  Anyway, I love love love my HT Towers, and believe they are a match made in heaven w/ my AVA gear.
  Honestly, I had never even heard of them until Frank mentioned them. I've been out of the HiFi hobby for a long time until a couple of years ago when my interest returned so I missed a lot of changes in the industry in the intervening years. So those speakers with their efficiency sound ideal but for my not having room for towers.

Why would anyone roast you, you're intitled to your opinion.

I just meant I know I'll be in the minority on that experience -- I believe there's a whole thread here about how well the LRS pair with the SET 120!

By the way what preamp are you using?

I have a Rogue RP-7, a Quicksilver line stage, and a Tisbury passive as pres and tried them all with the LRS+.  Usually that Rogue with the SET 120 is my go-to pairing.  But my room can get just a little bright at times and when I finally did get a power amp that worked better with the LRS+, I ended up using the Quicksilver more for the slightly smoother top end.
