Nice looking - for living room?

a Consonance Droplet to a Wavelength Duetto feeding a pair of Cain and Cain speakers ... there are used of all on the market and you would be under the $8k mark. with the droplet, no preamp is neededI am not selling any of the aboveJeff

Amplifier suggestions to drive a pair of NHT 3.3
Corey Greenberg formerly of Stereophile and Michael Fremer formerly of the Absolute Sound used the 3.3's as their reference speakers for a time when with these respective magazines ... I believe both used the Aragon 4004mk II as the partnering amp 
Anyone heard the Zu Cable "Druids"....
