Raven Audio Nighthawk
The Blackhawk for sale on Audiomart is definitely skypunk. His first name is Jeff and if you read his Audiomart feedback the name Jeff is mentioned. Looking at his virtual system you see some Simaudio Moon gear. Looking at his Audiomart feedback y... 
Integrated amp choice. Ayre AX5 Twenty vs Mark Levinson 585
allears4uI just ordered the Osprey to go with my recently purchased Raven Celeste Towers. The Celeste Towers replaced a pair of Tekton Electron SEs that just didn't do it for me. The Towers are a much more refined and coherent speaker a better sou...
