Klaus and I met yesterday to exchange Lorelei’s for Liquids.  There was more wheeling and dealing prior to this but this was the last step.

Thanks for lunch, Klaus!

I’ll post more as they break in but these are amazing!

If I could facilitate floor standers I would go with these hands down.  :duh: :duh: :duh: :duh: :duh: :duh:

Yep, walnut it is.  Not the most exotic wood but much of what I have is in walnut. 

Klaus will send you to a source with 100’s of choices and it was very difficult to chose walnut over the many others.

The top and door trim of the cabinet and the Mainline chassis are walnut.

Aaron, walnut may not be the most "exotic" of woods, but there is no arguing that it is pretty

Have you had anytime to do any listening? I know it's way to early but what do you think so far?

Gotta get some hours on them.  Treble is amazingly clear and imaging is excellent.  Mid is very good but the two big drivers need some settling in time.

I’ll keep updating here as things get some time to break in.

250 hours or so...

Between break-in, some foam inserts and cable switching around I think we're close.

I forgot I was testing some cables between the DAC and pre and another pair between pre and power amps.  I replaced those with Groneberg and things evened out.  Klaus also supplied some foam inserts for the back ports to experiment with.  I've changed these around a few times but now am using the more porous of the two in only the upper port.  Still no outriggers/spikes but they are on order.  I've also moved the listening chair up even closer - probably 6' now from ear to speaker.  I've got them toed in just a bit but I'm not going to mess with that until the outriggers arrive.

I've picked up a cold as well so my ears are all messed up right now.  But I really like the sound from these.  Definitely a step up from the Lorelei's.
