    Parasound 2100 preamp with HT bypass & yamaha Rx-v2600 for movies
    Squeezebox Touch (source)
    Oppo 981 DVD player for SACD & DVD_Audio
    Rythmik D-15SE sub EQ'ed very flat with Behringer FD
    Brandon: If I remember correctly you are using Sierra-1s (non-Nrt) as your surrounds, how do you have them placed - wall mounted or on stands? After few emails back and forth to Dave and advice from Cutris I might just stick with direct radiating/monopoles for my surrounds instead of dipoles and ideally would like Sierra-1s as surrounds if I go with monopoles to match new towers but not sure about the look of wall mounted Sierra-1s due to their depth.

    You are correct. They are wall mounted using the Btech77 mounts. They make great surround speakers for Multi Ch music and Blu-ray movies.

    See this thread for more info and pics....

    The midrange looks very similar to a Tangband full range driver.

    Very nice and I will be the first to offer my home for some R&D listening time.

    I have the very last picture from the first post as my external wallpaper on my phone. My previous pic was the Sierra 1 so I'm gonna have to pull rank and let the tower pic run the show for now...

    Congrats is in order to you! I can see it now, "Honey, let me go fill that wine glass for you" as you sneak into the office and view the "Tower Thread".

    Wow... Congrats Dave on a very fine, classy looking speaker! The piano black finished bases also look great and seem to add quite a nice touch, really looks top notch...

    Any ETA on the for sale date? How much is shipping going to run on these? Any guesstimates for shipping costs to Canada?
