They truly blow me away.

    Thank you Dave and Dina! We'll be in touch again I'm sure but hopefully just to see how things are going on your end and not me itching to buy more
    This photo has me sold on the Sierra Towers with RAAL in Satin Espresso. Now it's time to sell my Polk Audio LSiM speakers setup and save some extra money to get my Sierra with RAAL setup

    I'm going to be making the same decision (at least in part...I hope to also compare the Ascend Towers to similar KEF, Revel, and Ryan speakers). I've already eliminated B&W and Golden Ear (in comparison with the Focal 936). I'm hoping to order my Towers this week, and I will keep everyone informed with my speaker comparisons. It will be exciting!

    My Satin Expresso RAAL Sierra Towers + Horizon RAAL + Sierra 2s were ordered on Thursday. Hopefully I'll get them by mid January. Thanks Dave and Dina for your help Happy New Year!!!
