Thanks,
I have them setup in the sweet spot. Since they were a little smaller I was able to get them just right.
Equipment used: se el-84 tube amp, Kenwood c-2 ss preamp sl-d3 technics TT.

First lp I put on was Pinkfloyd Animals. Imaging was almost haunting. Very 3d sound stage. Sound was so precise you felt like you were in the picture.
The dogs in the distance, the whistling, the pigs. Excellent.

Next up I tried Cat Stevens. Voicing very clean. What got me the most was the piano. It sounded like it was in the room.

Dire Straits, eye opener for sure. This was like a live performance. Sound stage is very accurate. Airness around the instruments, clean drum beats. You could feel the sliding on the strings.

Summing up. I'd have to say the Towers made a synergy in the system. The in room response was very good. The bass is clean and low enough so no sub needed or wanted. Voice in the mids and highs, just right. Instruments really show up. You can hear the slightest tip of the drum edge with the sticks to the fingers working the strings.

For the amount of cash invested in the Towers. I'd have to say they are very good. To better them will cost alot more.

Total cost of the build was around 328.00 pair. That includes drivers, wood, jacks & wire, bottom bolts, foam and finish.

Did some more listening today. I wanted to make sure I didnt over project.

Tried Alan Parsons and Yes Fragile. Again they sound great. These speakers just match up to my system/room. I guess sometimes you just get lucky.

Had a friend over this weekend that wanted to try his new tube amp on the speakers. He has built many of the designs for MA and audio nirvana drivers. He was very impressed by the bass and balance of the betsyk's in the GM design enclosures. He also commented about that no bsc or other helpers were needed.
We had a good day playing all types of music.

Any idea what the output impedance is on the various tube amps?
