I'm in the Covington, Louisiana area (just north of New Orleans, 'cross dat big pond). aa
I have a very vanilla setup consisting of a pair of lovely, sensibly black-dyed red oak-veneered (I think?) SongTowers with the standard dome tweets. They're being fed currently by an HK 3385 stereo receiver with a Grant Fidelity B-283 tube buffer in between the preamp and amp stages.
The sound is heavenly.
If you'd like to set up a listening session, throw me a PM.
