    I believe those amps are Audio Research Reference 600. I think they cost about $70K a pair and as the model number states, 600 watts a piece.

    I currently use Magnaplaner SMGs and the newer model 1.7. They both sound very impressive. I also have Martin Logan, Quad and Infinity electrostats that also sound very sweet. If you have enough clean power, it's hard to go wrong with stats or Magnepan speakers.

    They don't suffer moving like many others, would be fine wrapped in blankets, laid back.

    These are full range, they need a subwoofer, or a K bin woofer!!!!!!!!!!! The highs and mids will wreck your last good nerve!! Seriously, you heard what the Summits can do, these are 2X's better!

    He's selling because he bought the bigger ones, and doesn't want them to just sit around getting old!

    Well, you have to keep the wife happy, sorry for trying to move you, remember, these old Maggies usually need work, are you up to that?

    Is she up to having big panels far out in the room? If so, go boy!! You will be a happy camper!
