Thanks for the welcome back. Nice to be home where it's cold and rainy. I hate those warm sunny places where you walk 2 minutes to the ocean and I especially hate all those bikinis at this time of year.

My poor wife.

prezden,
xrk is master, I am grasshopper. I learn much from his ways.

Master: "Tell me Grasshopper, what do you see when I show you this plain white rectangular foam core board?"

Grasshopper: "I see many many different speakers that I can build quickly and cheaply..."

Master: "Ahhh, but do you see the accumulation of the heaps of speaker builds that collect in the court yard, crying out to be connected to an amplifier so that they might be able to utter a sound?"

Grasshopper: "Does a speaker exist if it doesn't make a sound?

Master: "Swmbo hears it."

I have heard the rumour master. I will return to the house of Wellington soon to see if this is true.

Yes my son. Any object that occupies space, exists.

Ahhh... thank you master. You have spoken words that others will find so truly wise. This grasshopper has already recognized the wisdom as he is blessed with a SWMBO. Until SWMBO, grasshopper thought himself wise. He has now been enlightened to the truth. He now realizes his choice of daily attire is in the hands of a wiser person. He also realizes that flatulence in bed is less than desirable and that body odour shall be of the flowery variety as apposed to the "after sports" sort that was perfectly acceptable until the arrival of SWMBO.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled speaker thread.

Package arrived from planet10 with the two new sets of Aura drivers. The $2 AS3's are better than expected.
Hard to see but the other mounting holes have been filled with hot glue.

And the slightly more expensive NS3's are quite nice as well. A little beefier of a driver of course.

Here's all the competitors. I will have to do a little more listening but it may be that the LG's are in first place but not gonna rubber stamp it yet, the Auras are just getting warmed up.
