Ah - the good old battleship grey Cambridge Audio livery. It was panned by the reviewers, as were the buttons on the CD player (they described them as reminiscent of poking dead flesh). Very unfair, b

Current gear in rotation. Wilson Audio WATT Series 3-Puppy 2 speakers Luxman L10 integrated amp Thorens TD-125 MKII w/Denon DL-160 cart Maverick Audio TubeMagic D2 DAC w/Burson V6 Classic OpAmps

I picked up the Wilsons a couple of weeks ago for $500. I installed new foam surrounds on the woofers and they sound incredible. I’ve gone through probably 30 pairs of speakers in the last 3+ years and nothing comes close to what I’m hearing with the Wilsons.

They image incredibly well and I’m hearing things I’ve never heard on recordings before. I initially had them hooked up to my McIntosh MAC 4100 but I think they sound better with the Luxman. The Luxman is only 55 watts but it seems to be plenty. The Wilsons replace a pair of ADS L1290 that I loved but couldn’t compete with the Wilsons. I sold them to a friend the day after I refoamed the Wilsons.

The Wilson Watt Puppies usually went for around $10-11K so that was a pretty good deal for a $500 pair of speakers.

Legacy Audio Classics.

Why go to the trouble to put such a nice system in your kill room?

Because I plan to spend a lot of time there?

In that case, I'd budget for curtains.

I used to own that exact Legacy Classic speaker model (same finish too).  Miss them....when I got engaged, my wife got a nice ring and I got these!  I love my wife!  😊  We eventually redesigned our family room, though, and couldn't keep these....  Still love my wife 😃

At $500 it was possibly the best deal I've seen in audio.

Don't be hasty now. Those little clay testicles that Patrick 182 sold through his Coconut Audio, that hung on your cables were supposed to immediately, vastly improve any system for mere hundreds of dollars.

Obviously he wants to here a little "stuck in the middle with you" by Stealers Wheel, while he slices and dices.

Oh jeez, I'd forgotten all about that nutter.

Wow, Patrick is still out there!  Now also using "Audiophile Rocks" name.....he has good taste in aquariums..... [EDIT: he's just as fun as always!  Not even all the way thru and I'm smiling and remembering]

Oh*my*word. Looks very fishy :P

Anyone here remember the late lamented Peter Belt? Even the names of the strange and wonderful products evoke a feeling a mystery and imagination. How about some Morphic Green Cream with which to adorn your Friendly Four Legged Stance Device? http://www.pwbelectronics.co.uk/product-information .
