    I haven't seen it in person, but if you look at the measurements, it isn't *that* big...40" high, I believe. Tall, but not unusually tall. Keep in mind that those woofers are only 6.5", so it's not that wide, either.

    Looks deep though, I'll check out the specs, the pics sure make it look massive!

    James,
    We have them on display in the shop in the Boston cherry finish if you can make it downtown to check them out in real life.

    COol Mark.... maybe some day, still busy building the theatre this weekend etc.

    Mark, do you think a pair of 8W Tubes would make these sing? They seem to be VERY efficient. I'm currently running B&W 303's which aren't efficient at all and rated for 25w minimum, and they are plenty lound and sound great.

    James,
    I don't have much experience with tubes but I do have a few clients in the United States that use the M80TiSe with 12 watt tube amps and they have all given me quite positive feedback on the combination.
    Try posting at audio asylum in the tube forum and maybe some will respond with their thoughts on the combination as well.

    Mark, or maybe when I get some time / $$$ I'll bring my tubes in and try them in the shop? That wouldn't be a problem would it?

    Yes, please do, I'd be most keen to hear the combination.
