    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    No, I wasn't dumpster diving for BLoSE parts. Just happened to run across the thread in the depths of the forum and I saw who the author was........so I posted my reaction. Figured it'd be good for a Friday night chuckle or two.

    I wonder if Russ still wants those pic's?

    I think they would work nicely with a pair of new LSiM towers.

    My girlfriend has 901's and at first I too thought they completely sucked a$$ - to the point that I really felt bad for her having spent so much on them (yrs ago before I knew her).
    But then I hooked them up to my Denon with a Carver amp and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! They sound great, but ONLY with an amp. Just my experience...

    I have never been impressed with the 901's, not that I have listened to all variants. They do make good party speakers as they play loud. I was always more impressed with the 601's.
