Add Dire Straits album-Love Over Gold ( i like Telegraph Road) The harmonics will test your speakers.
and Tangerine Dream- Poland. As loud as you can take.
If you are going deep into a six pack, Doors- Riders on the Storm.

The tonal quality is very good, but I have only about 7 hours total on them (at decent volume). I expect improvement over the next several hours of use as they break in.

I have them about a foot off the wall and I am playing around with placement to find the sweet spot.

They reveal weakness in my power amp and CD transport and I am going to replace the amp in about 2 weeks and then the CD.

New ML sub recommends 50 hour break-in at moderate listening levels. I set some tonal pulses to run overnight to hasten the break-in. Now, if I turn the volume up to a movie listening level, the sub is just about perfect at 50% gain. If I crank it up to 75% it rattles pictures off the wall. Thinking about a second one

I do not recommend the side configuration stands for the Martin Logan SLM speakers. Center channel fell on the concrete floor while I was gone the other day - it's been sitting in the same spot for months

So I upgraded to the XL versions (FL/FR/FC) and plan to move the smaller speakers to surround (RR/RL + RC - if the one that fell still works) Also picked up a second identical sub for $500 at a floor model discount

Oh we have some audiophiles in here..

I'm midway through building a C-Note speaker kit. Should be a LOT better than the shitty 2.1 setup I'm using for my PC.

I took out a 4.5ft^3 Box with a JL 18W6 that I custom built. It will not work with the new furniture that My wife and I bought.
It was connected to a 1000watt amp to the Marantz 7702. I had to take the clock off the wall if cranking. Broke picture frames after they fell and most my ceiling lights are LEDS now because the filaments could not hang with the bass.
My wife was never a fan and never around when we went to fun levels.
Those days are over and the sub/amp up for sale.
I bought a JL e-112 a while ago that I planned on using for another project, but that will go up for sale too.

Went with a 10" Truaudio powered sub for now that passes the wife factor.
(she cannot see it)
Big bass days are gone. sad.

Not into brews but very curious about collectability. Which ones?
