"hi allan,
it's been a few days but i've been listening to music, through the S's, and i have to say Thank You Thank You Thank You ..... my god, do you know how to build a decent speaker. i thought the ruark templars were good, but compared to the monopulses they are, how do i put it, thin - lightweight - immature even. i was expecting an improvement but not like this :) and the bass, the detail - i wasn't even aware this level of information existed down there (i can feel, & hear, the ringing of the bass strings ripple through me). anything recorded live is on a different level, and the decca 'world of stereo action' lp is - well i don't know what it is, but it's not hifi any more. everything i play has an extra dimension - a rightness - so again many, many thanks,
jason ."
