    Me...me... I like it a bit punchy though. Punchy, yet neutral. I have achieved this with my current setup. No intention of upgrading or spending any more $$$.

    i prefer totally neutral. Have also achieved this with my current setup no matter what material i throw at it, also have no intention to change... though tempted to get a EMC1 CD player to replace my current one.

    Mission 782s that I used listen too has what you need, just nice for a reasonable size of room, preferably medium size room like 4 Mtr x 4 Mtr or so, totally not suitable for big size room...if you want to go for that you should go for 783s or the old 753s and upgrade to a bigger Amp than your current MF.

    As I said earlier, take your amp and cd player to audition with the Mission and you will be surprised with what you are missing!

    M71 was designed to be used for Home Theatre System...it didn't get good review for straight audio stereo. The sound is a bit bright to some ears, you need to complement it with a good sub-woofer and biwire your amp to get full juice from it...Don't separate it too far away...about 1.5-2mtr apart will do to get a good soundstaging and away from the wall about 0.5-1mtr with slight toe-in.... Good Luck.

    Those are hard to come by man

    My dad's set is using a pair of 733i rosewood and biamped ... damn the details are clear! But the CDP is juz a lousy one (pioneer) and my amp, well a Yamaha AX-392 which is good enough.

    Confession: I spent more $$$ on Hi-Fi than my photo gear. $850 for a 1 meter interconnect! I can buy a fancy carbon fiber tripod with that kind of dough.

    I saw one on sale recently. Very clean, BUT way overpriced. The seller refused to reduce.

    ok guys,

    i'm getting my speaker cables tomorrow (friday)..

    i've made up my mind to get the Canare.

    So in LHS, approx how much is the Canare 4S11 per metre? And is it necessary (better) to terminate it with banana plugs? if so, how much is each plug?
