    These Maggies reveal everything! If there is a weak link anywhere in the chain the speakers will expose it and then beat you over the head with it repeatedly while you listen. First the amp, then the preamp (still working on that one), then cables, and now the DAC. And then, when I get ALL that done there's still some really poorly recorded material that'll just never sound good on this rig. Lucky for me, the vast majority of the stuff I'd actually sit down and listen to on this rig is well recorded and sounds great on them.

    These speakers are really some temperamental bitches, but once you get them dialed in it's like nothing else you've ever heard. I can't guarantee you'll like them, but I can guarantee you they're different
    Yup, thats an accurate description of Maggies. Very source revealing. MP3's wont cut it with them lol....

    But man do they do so many things right. And my wife likes em which is like 99% of the battle. Some 1.7s in my future someday.

    Honestly I'm still mixed on the sub. The sub itself is actually great, it's the concept of even having a sub that I'm struggling with. On tracks with good bass the Maggies are fine and I actually prefer their bass, but on recordings with marginal bass I find them lacking. I also need to check in with my neighbors downstairs and see how they like it :-) We're in a steel and concrete building, so I'm not sure how much of an issue it is.

    I need to send you a check too, shoot me your address via PM and I'll get it out to you.

    I got the Oppo 105 installed and its burning in now. Out of the box it was very good but a little harsh at times, 12 hours in and things have already smoothed out. I'll do se critical listening and report back after a few days of burn in.

    I've uploaded a couple quick pics of the new setup.
