New Magnepan "Concept Speaker" introduced at Audio Connection
Josh358,  Thanks for that. Let’s hope a commercial version might give us a choice to use amps of our choice, if possible.  Time will tell.

What just happened to accepting Paypal?? looks like they are trying to drive us away
So in order to complete the transaction I ended up having to send payment directly to the sellers email account associated with his PayPal account.  Others may have to do the same if they want to make a purchase here. 
What just happened to accepting Paypal?? looks like they are trying to drive us away
Yes.  I just spent one entire hour to complete a purchase here on  Audiogon.  What a pain!  Two weeks ago, it took less than a minute. This evening I had to call PayPal to see what was going on, and it turns out it is Audiogon not PayPal.  Thankfu...
