    Music Direct (and others I'd guess) have the Elac Adante speakers on big sale. Thinking maybe they'll get replaced by a v2 line or something else. I've briefly heard the AS-61 stand-mounted and they are VERY VERY good.....and now $1,000 off, to $1,499. https://www.musicdirect.com/Search?category=ELAC%20Adante%20Series&sort=popularity|DESC&page=1&pagesize=24&c1=tab-products&c2=grid

    ^^ Yes, good thinking. Despite MANY attempts to deflect our cats to other scratching areas, they used to scratch anything they want. One has passed, and the other still likes to scratch various things other than his posts or pads; he did some grill cover damage to a pair of Platinum Audio PT-801 monitors I had a little bit low to the ground. But a few other speakers I've had in the same spot he didn't touch. So who knows what scents/grill cloth feeling/whatever drove him just to those speakers....

    Never mind the speaker panels having lots of streaks and pulls in them!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Celebrating Karen's birthday with an extended weekend celebration.... Last night we saw Livingston Taylor at a nice theater that is about a mile away from our Maine condo! Nice time, though I tried to get a note to him through the staff to wish her a happy bday and he didn't.... BTW, the Cowboy Junkies are coming there in October, will try and see them. Today, we're both working remotely, but we'll do a nice dinner at a restaurant by the water tonight. Then son comes up tomorrow and we'll do a couple more things. Then home Sunday; Karen is going to a play with a friend, then her mom is taking us out Sunday night to celebrate....

    Oh, man, RIP Rutger Hauer. Aside from Blade Runner, my other favorite role of his was in The Hitcher. Not a great movie, but he made it great to watch.

    ^^^ Those Dali's should be in Speaker Porn....I've liked some of the sound I've heard from that small dome mid and ribbon tweeter of theirs....
