Ok ... It might just be me. I got an SPL and set my system up. I was way off by ear. I don't think I have ever played anything that loud yet. Might have been the balance. Might have been the speakers breaking in. Might have been the DD mix on The perfect Storm DVD. But it sounded great, in fact the best that it have ever sounded. What do you think. Oh, should I get some banana plugs or save up for N28 or N38 fronts? DS595 NSP1 PB10 Ratshack A/V gold RS megacable, bare wire.
