Anyone ever hear Meyer Sound X-10 speakers?
How would these speakers do with a low watt SET system? 
Artists One Should Know
Slaw- you are correct. Bill Callahan is a pure unadulterated musical genius. I heard Dongs of Sevotion first and have been on a Callahan vinyl buying rampage since. I vow to have everything he has put to wax if i can find it.

Good choice. Love Badfinger. But a better choice IMO would have been You Get What You Deserve by the other power poppers Big Star. 
Child-Proof Speakers
Hang them from the rafters.....I did it works great.
