    The Devil don't worry me, a scratch golfer does. Let's see what we can do before the end of the summer.

    I have heard them twice - loudest speaker I have heard outside a concert venue. I am curious how the combination sounds with the fully comp 700. I will be passing through Gillette again next summer. I may have to stop for another listen.

    You are more than welcome. Expect a lot more bass this time. When you were here the speakers were out of phase with each other.

    We put the rig through the paces, Shpongle, Bonamassa, Floyd....

    Kicked back, feeling alright, closed my eyes and began to listen to a huge soundstage. Sounded like the stage was right in front of me. The system was completely transparent. Very detailed, crisp and distinct. Then he hit the bass with Shpongle, holy shit, it felt like the bottom of the room dropped out and this wave of bass just emanated from under your feet. It literally physically effected your gut. No distortion, just crisp, loud and distinct.

    Given my previous experience with K's I'm going to have to attribute this wonderous sound to the WOPL or the perfect combination. I will withhold more opinion until I hear my speaks with a WOPL. Tough shoes to fill, hope my 808's and. WOPL stand tall against the K's. It'll be tough!

    My wife sat through the session. She even made comments on what she was hearing, all good.
    Had to bring up my OP for the continuing saga....

    Sitting in what I will call the "Grasshoppers Chair" listening to DS on my freshly acquired Lee Laatsch WOPL 400 cranking to the red zone I need to continue the above conversation.

    The shoes have been filled Lee! I was hoping to experience the Masters Chair again, I have and I'm not in WY. Unbelievable soundstage, crisp, clear feel it in the gut bass. Every sound distinct, great imagry. I wanted to get the feeling of transparency that I got from your system and I feel I have.

    The 808s performed fantastic. Took everything I gave it before the room took over and had to level off. All in all I would say they are another good pairing for a WOPL

    She did run a bit hot after the session. Letting her cool a bit, have to get a fan in the back of the cabinet.

    No winners, no losers, just two great sounding systems that I have had the pleasure of hearing.
