Ordered Song3s end of January. Been stuck on veneering for two months; still showing 23% complete. Took advice of Brian D and bought a pair of AA monitors from Dennis Murphy at Philharmonic. Arrived yesterday, can't stop listening. These very affordable (@ $210, a STEAL) monitors paired with Emotiva ERC-3 as transport and Parasound Halo integrated/DAC are so musical: open, airy and good staging. Decent volume in mid-size room. Ron Woods slide guitar on Around the Plynth (Faces, Stay With Me anthology) walks around the room like vintage Bose 901s. Kartik Seshadri sitar on Raga Anandi, Illuminations, is so soulful. Live Dead/St. Stephen/The Eleven comes to life. All this for $210? Thank you Dennis Murphy. Sorry I waited 3 months. Waiting for the Song3s just got a whole lot less painful.
