Mofojo, do you run a subwoofer with your triton ones? How is the speed, accuracy and bass in the speakers sound compared to a sub? I recently sold my sub(SVS PB13 Ultra) I had with my Casta Model D8's(recently sold) and purchased Casta Model C's. These C's have one 2" horn tweeter , one 17" horn midrange and a 15" bass driver in each. So these go pretty low. Basically replaced the sub. Curious on your impressions of your powered subs built in to your speakers.
I do have a JL F113 sub that I sometimes turn on for movies. Thinking of selling it as i don't think even then it adds too much. Tritons bass is very tight and deep after the passive radiators break in. Give them 60-100 hours before making any opinions on them. I left them on fairly loud over a 3 day weekend when we went on a trip. When I got back home they were good to go. The sub in the Triton is just integrated beautifully with the rest of the spectrum once you get the level set. Much better integration than I have been able to achieve blending in subs. I find myself turning them down more as they break in. The great thing though is if you feel like having some drinks and being pummelled with bass you can turn the subs up a notch and they don't muddle up the midrange.

My new Sony ES amp is now a day old. So far so good. Will write more about it later in a separate thread, after I've had it awhile. I can tell I dig it enough to part with my CroMag. Although, that's on the block as I'm moving to NC where it's too hot for tubes.
Meanwhile, today I went to Schmitt's house here in Mpls and picked up 20ft speaker cables and xlr ICs. He's a mad scientist type. Gear everywhere. His handmade stuff is here on agon.
Lots of new gear last 24 hours!
Well I think this Sony amp is a sleeper. The specs are pure simplicity. Nothing extra in the way of the sound. It's also an 'intelligent' amp. Has features both inside (e.g., real-time bias) and outside (e.g., UX stuff, best binding posts in the history of binding posts) that I've never enjoyed prior.
And at $2k it's a ridiculous deal. The matching server gets all the ink but this amp, I'm telling ya...
