    Thanks; yes..speaker wires go through the wall (that's a closet). The interconnect for the 3.1 TL's is also wired there for the times I feel like listening to some SDA...

    I plan to have a dedicated room for the two channel in the little unfinished basement I have; some day it will happen. For now, not the ideal location, but they still sound great. When I work from home, I grab a small table and put it right in front of them. Love it.

    Cool speakers, but I'm in the 'cant friggin stand oak' crowd.

    I'd still have my Legacy Classics, and VMPS subwoofer, if they had not been oak. I loathe oak.

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    My wife is in the "loathe" oak category. . . I love rich gold oak. I'm a maple lover too. Maybe it's because I grew up in the 60s & 70s how weird is that?

    Those oak AL III's have definitely made their rounds LOL.

    I still have a pair of Black AL III's to unload. (I think since they are just taking up space)
    For awhile, both the oak and black pairs were up in my audio room. Was difficult choosing which to unload.

    Too bad the AL III's are virtually impossible to ship.
