For some reason I still have a hard on for a pair of Vandersteen 2ci . Now the 2ci have the butyl surrounds which are way better than replaceing aging foam surrounds. When speaking to the dealer he said the stands are a must which I have heard is a necessity to get that correct height to ear ear level. Speaking of levels he asked me if I had both a torpedo line level which I do and a lazer level and do not . Here's where the question comes in does one need a lazer level to adjust a pair of speakers that are going to be 7' apart horizonitally w/ the adjusting the stands. It just seems like over kill to me.
He also said to bi wire them and ditch the speaker selector deal.I would if and when I get the speakers that will be the end of the road for me.
