    Hi,

    I've been reading the gr-research site about the Alpha LS line source kit. It looks as impressive as a speaker gets and it appears to be the ultimate full range stereo speaker. I guess I'm a bit ignorant because until recently I had no idea such a speaker existed. What is the advantage of such a design? Is there any disadvantage? The kit would cost less than a pair of B&W 604's for crying out loud. This might be a future project for me in a year or more. Would a B&K 4420 amp drive these speakers well? From my reading it appears that they are quite efficient so I would guess it would be fine.

    Thanks for any info or links to more info! Those speakers would look incredible in my house! My friends would think I was totally crazy.

    Darren
