    I got them Saturday Brian Bunge from RAD brought them over and hooked them up. Brian's customer service is the best. I love the look of the towers they have a nice finish and design. I really like the rounded look compared to the squared corners. They also have a nice base at the bottom. My only problem so far is I can't decide on what finish to go with. I love the look of the maple but my entertainment center is black as well as my tv and components. I can get them in black but the maple looks much nicer. I like stuff to match but I'm gonna let my wife decide which finish since she was the one that wanted to get new speakers. As for sound they sound great. Much more clear than my former speakers. I can especially tell a difference when the shells are falling in The Matrix lobby scene.He also brought a sub with him that not sure which one but it is outstanding. If you have any questions about them he will be looking in to answer them for you. I will be pairing them with a RAD C-1 center and two micros for the rear. At first I wasn't sure about the Micros looking at them on line but seeing them in person changed my mind. I thought they were going to be to big but they are perfect size and great sound to be so small. If you have any questions ask away if I can't answer them I know Brian can. To sum it up I love these speakers. David

    I had Cerwin Vegas 12" floorstanders up front and bookshelfs in the rear and a acoustic research center and my sub was also Cerwin Vega. They sounded ok to me but now I wouldn't go back.

    I'll second the recommendation for Brian. He is a great guy, and a real pleasure to deal with. His craftsmanship and customer service are second to none.

    Bunnyhugs is a good man here on the forums, I'd like to listen to his designs one of these days.

    Seems to be one of the few to offer tiny DIY type speakers.

    Brian,

    I didn't even know you guys designed your own speakers! What drivers do they use?

    Michael,

    The towers, monitors, and center are kits which we have modified (mainly for lower frequency extension) to our own specs. They use Vifa, Peerless, and proprietary drivers. The Micros use Tang Band drivers and are a joint effort between Hank Frankenberg and myself.
