One thing about Magnapan, they have been around a long time. Their speakers have always sounded good and are reasonably priced. A three month lead time is for starters these days.  I see ads here for admin asst  here for $20-25/hr.  Thats what it ... 
Add-Powr Power Conditioner Review
I have the Symphony IO.  All I have to do is turn in on and sit down. It takes a few linutes, then you will hear the music sound richer and more open.  Turn it off and music will just sound less engaging and open.  This test is repeatable. I have ...
