    felito,

    You would do better posting a new thread with your questions. This thread was and is about maggies and their owners. Sorry!!

    Resurrecting this thread for an update and to see if any Allans/Allens/Alans are still around. You heard it here first, I am selling all of my Maggies -- 3.6Rs, 1.6QRs, and CC3 -- and downsizing. I will be heartbroken to see them go, but I don't have a choice. A great deal has transpired over the past six months. I managed to shatter my left knee leaving me permanently disabled and with enough titanium in my leg to build a child's bicycle. /img/vbsmilies/htf/rolleyes.gif">
    On the upside, I lost about one hundred and sixty pounds of useless fat by divorcing my wife.

    I am sorry to hear about your knee and I have gone through that type of weight loss myself a couple of times. My problem is I keep putting it back on. :)

    I am also sad to hear that you are selling your maggies.

    You will have to let those of us that don't have our own maggies and those that do what you think of the new speakers in comparison.

    Thanks guys! I just got word this morning from Jim Salk that my speakers and subs should be shipping tomorrow. I am very much looking forward to getting them set up and giving them a listen. The speakers and subs were all made to match, the cabinets are bamboo and dyed sort of a Rosewood red color. I also went all out and got the ribbon tweeter upgrade. As soon as they all arrive, I'll be putting all of my Maggies and Mye stands up for sale. Although I'm sorry to have to sell the Maggies, I'm looking forward to moving to a smaller and more manageable place. And I'm really enjoying bachelorhood.

    It looks like our little group has not been reading this post for a while. I wanted to share a sad event in my life. I lost the love of my life, my soul mate, my wife of 36 years to lung cancer about 6 months ago. Needless to say, things like HT systems and such lose much of their importance. I hope you all are doing well. We had a great post going for a long time!!
