Howdy folks, THANKS! for all responses :-) Mitch4t...I'd love to hear about your Kappa 9 experiences...yeah, it is a bit crazy :-D I'm actually going to use individual Kappa 9's as 4 surround speakers! Overkill? Sure, but that's not why I'm doing it. I'm not even an huge surround kind of a guy. But, the K-9's are AMAZING musical/2 channel speakers. I'm sure many will poo-poo them as old world tech. But, mine are pristine-ly restored and the fusion of the old tech speakers with the "new" tech class D amp is AWESOME and should be heard before dismissing (IMO). I never thought I'd find an amp that could do it, but the PS Audio OWNS those kappas...and it's not even their highest power amp! Anyway, thanks for your thoughts, and PLEASE...anyone have any others?
