Well after hearing so much on how the RDO-194s are better than the SL2000 ,even with my compromised hearing there certainly is a major difference.I must say the Silver Domes were starting to break apart at certain pitch levels some but not all songs.The songs that I knew were trouble and I went straight to with no apparent problems at the higher frequencies.I did order Larry's Rings but they have not come in yet so what I'm doing right now is just a test w/o the Armacell gaskets being finished or even the polyfill put back. I do have the Dynamat and Black Hole-5 so I figured I was ok w/ this temp test so far so good.I have kept an ongoing price list to what I have put in to these and here goes.
