You will be delighted with your Athena, Greg. I have one of Lou's earliest pairs (same pair he first took to shows), which have been with me for several yrs now. All the upgrades, etc since. Lou and I have chatted many times about raising the bar with the Apollo 11s, and I may yet do so someday. For now, I can just tell you that the Athena continue impress - Beautiful and spot-on clarity, truth-to-source timbre, all the superlatives apply. I still shake my head with a smile. Recently changed amplification from Merrill Audio Veritas (Class D) to VAC Statement 450 iQ. I never knew what the Athena could bring until the VAC walked in!
Enjoy your new babies.
