Still enjoy the ns-1000m.daily! Since my last post here, I ditched my tube preamps and bought ...

i'm selling a pair of Spendor BC1a with the internal M50 amps for a friend (no, this is not a classified ad - just getting an idea of what to offer locally). they work fine. a few questions ...

i just sold the calindas a month ago. very sad moment for me, but we simply don't have the space to store them.

they went to a good home though - an avid KEF fan. he has a pair of 1/4/2 and always ...

sounds cool!

I'd try the vifas in both speakers. once you get the hang of how they go in, the tweeters are super easy to swap and play around with.

I've never heard stock T33b's as mine were fri ...

cool! were you T33b bad or you just wanted to try the vifas?
