Update- Tower-RAALS (Espresso) will be ordered first thing Monday morning! (Gotta beat the Q1 price increase!!). SOOO excited.

I did my own homework and concluded the Ascends (vs Philharmonic) was the way to go for a number of reasons.

Will post impressions as soon as we have these works of art in our home.

Can't thank you all enough for you abundance of helping information on this forum (and others).
