Thanks for the friendly welcome. Re the PHY speakers, I have owned them for nine years now. Two pairs of the Grand Crescendo speakers reached New Zealand, this pair being one. They are superb with some material, especially acoustic, small group jazz or classical, blues, country etc. but struggle at times with orchestral or big band material. But with the right music you just go 'Wow!'. The cabinets are a work of art and are very light, only 17kg each with very thin 4mm sides, internally braced at intervals. The speakers work extremely well with the Shindo Corton Charlemagne amps, but surprisingly less well with the Thoress 300B's, hence the addition of the Omega Super Alnico monitors.
Here are a couple more pics:
