    Finally! Edward "Herson" Gein upgrades speakers!

    Bout time! I've been talking to ol' Ed 'Herson' Gein via email and he told me he finally got rid of his little Pod speakers and upgraded to some B&W 603's! Finally after various $200 optical cables and thousands of dollars spent on magical tweaks, gadgets, and pixie snot he finally realized that we were right and new speakers was all he needed.

    He'll be on later with pictures and details.

    Maybe. He could not figure out how to do a search for his own posts to find info.

    It's about 3/4 of the way across the line that starts with B I U....... It looks like a mountain range with a sun above it. Once you hold your pointer over it, it reads insert image.

    The smiles are to the right where they have always been. Are you joshing with us because this is the April fools thread?

    Well Cosmetically 5 of those & a Sub Would Look Like Crap In a Medium Sized Room

    I don't know what they sound like but cosmetically 5 of those speakers & a sub you used in your illustration in my medium sized living room would look like total crap. Within the confines of my apartment I am more then happy with the sound of my 5 Orb Speakers & Sub.

    Actually, from what you're saying here, you're more than happy with the looks of the Orbs in your room and that's perfectly acceptable.

    But, to say that they sound better than anything else that could fit in there might be cause for discussion.
