    I had the regular version 2.3s and tried biamping. Barely noticed any difference soundwise. I tried it with a few different amps and combinations and decided it wasn't worth the effort for the extra...

    Agreed; The 4100 is a nice receiver but you're in for a real treat when you move up to quality separates.

    Agreed; that price isn't out of line. I paid $700 for mine several years back and got the same back for them when the time came. A pair of Polk 2.3s is what sent them packing. I am not a horn guy...

    I've found I get the best sound from mine with the amp gains at full and the input at the less sensitive 2.5 setting. I've tried several different combinations but this is what seems to give the best...

    So I'm thinking the only way you can run mono's on them is by strapping the negatives together?

    Big Mac's and big polks are a recipe for great sound imo. If it was me I'd be looking for an a1 interconnect to try those 2300's bridged. I don't believe it's overkill as my 1.2's have soaked up all...

    Thanks for the comparison Mystery. I'm thinking I'm going to pass on a pair of 10's at my local flea now. I thought their price was a tad high anyways and they've been there for a few months now.

    Nice score; I wouldn't pass up a pair of 10's either. I wonder how they'll compare to the 400's you have there in the background?

    Without getting into specifics I wish anyone buying anything from that guy good luck; you'll need it and a lot of patience. Make sure you don't prepay either as he's not a man of his word.

    Can't beat firsthand knowledge. Who knows; you just may prefer them and you won't know till you bring them home and try em out.

    I had a damn fine pair of speakers here this summer in a side by side comparison with my 1.2s. Even though they (ads 1530's) sounded better (better low end and sweeter mids) they did not have that...

    Vintage infinitys have a much different sound than your polks. I never cared for the forward sound of them and preferred the more mellow less fatiguing sound of the 2.3s. Your milage may vary. I also...

    I went from a tfm 45 on mine to a McIntosh mc2500. That was one of the best upgrades I ever made on my rig and has ended my amp search.

    Prepare to be crucified Jake for suggesting that adding a sub is an improvement on your 2s bass. I run a nice quality 18" sub with my 1.2tl's and I know what you speak of; it's the truth.

    Hmmm; I'd be interested in knowing that as well. I have a pair of relatively high power tube mono's (85wpc) and an A1 interconnect. I keep thinking about trying those monos on my 1.2tl's but my...

    The M4 is an excellent amp and the C4 is a diamond in the rough imo. There's a fellow in Indiana that mods Yamaha gear and the pre's come back sounding as good as any pre that I've ever heard. Which...

    1.2tl's are my favorites mostly because it's the only pair of sda's I currently own. Had the 2.3s non tl and a pair of the crs's. They were excellent sounding speakers but to me there's nothing like...

    Another thing you might want to check is for dc coming out of those amps. I had a 555 send 6 volts directly to the speaker since there's no protection circuit to stop it. Those drivers are robust and...
