Yes I have a pair of Excalibur III's and I use them in my secondary system, currently a bridged pair of Jeff Rowland model 1's a consummate pre-amp, an EAD 9000 DA and 7000 transport and cardas Golden cross. It is a very laid back system and sounds very vinyl like but the resolution with the Merlins is excellent and they have a wide and deep sound stage. They are an excellent speaker and do a lot of things very right including the mid-range they do not have the focus of my Dunlavy SC-5's but what does? or have quite the bass response but they also have a wider soundstage and they never muddle up regardless of the musical complexity. If you get a chance to purchase some for a reasonable price they should keep you quite happy as I know mine do drop me a line if you would like more info.
