My speakers showed up today, and, like the rest of this stuff, I can’t try them yet, but I can tell you this: they’re beautiful.
No, really. These are damn fine looking speakers. Reminds me of something Steve Jobs once said: I almost want to lick them. If they sound half as good as they look, this is going to be fandamntastic.
My only concern is that they are 6Ω and I’d specced the system for 8Ω. The wiring is (deliberately) good enough for that, but the Denon really wants 8Ω if you double the surrounds. Should be OK as long as I don’t drive them too hard.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing them on the walls almost as much as firing them up so I can hear them. More reassurance that this will all pay off soon.
