Sequerra 7.7 Mk. 1 - finish?
I loved the original Met 7. Sold them in 1985. Would love to hear a pair again.   
Room correction room system vs ears….

CD player suggestions...
A 18ga. PC is rediculous. Most any decent PC of larger guage would make an improvement. Given the cost differential between generic 18 vs 14 guage PCs I always wonder why manufactures of even budget components wuold ship with a 18 ga one.  I have ...
