    Understandable.

    I have stuff I would worry about shipping also. But I'm pretty proficient in packing.

    Roadtrip? haha. Sounds like a good excuse for a mini vacation.

    I'm thinking something with a diamond in it would go a long way towards the good fight. :D

    Good luck though, I'm sure they would be sweet.

    Now thats something we'll need pictures of.

    Next you'll need a pair of Amazing's to to complete the look.

    I am in the minority here but I don't care to much for the amazings... they sound great but are to finicky for my taste when it comes to those awesomely delicate ribbons

    I'm impartial. I havent been close enough to hear a set.

    But defintely plan on owning a set, once there is a pair close enough.

    That's about 5-600 below the typical price. I'd jump on them immediatly, even if you have to drive for 'em. Your opinion of Amazings will change if you power them with 9t's. The ribbons aren't a problem unless you live in an area with wildly fluctuating humidity.
    Lots of Carver stuff and a pair of LSi9's

    I would get them checked out if at all possible. I know a guy who got a pair for $ 800 and promptly had to sink another $ 800 into them Still a nice setup even at $ 1600 (basically rebuilt at that point) but as always, buyer beware.
