I pulled my horns out this weekend for a listen and show.

Good to see you're up and running.  ;)

How did the weekend go?  I have other good speakers, but the Horns continue to be my favorites.  I have a really great pair of Bozaks, but I still gravitate to the Horns.

Hi Henry,

The weekend is still going great.. haven't been able to turn my system off since I set the horns up.
I am a lover of electrostatics and horns.
Ed's horns always amaze me whenever I listen them, that's why i have always kept a pair.

My system comprises:

Musical Design transport and Dac
Prometheus TVC preamp and buffer stage
pair of DIY gain Clones
Muse mode18 subwoofer

The design was created by an older audiophile friend of mine.

Hey Derockster, nice looking subs. You should try getting them away from The Horns. Put a really long wire on them and move them around the room. I have found the best place for a sub is seldom near the mains!
I just noticed you equip. profile.............. you may be interested in this note I got today :)......... I live for this!

"So was I astounded by the truth? No. It has replaced my Promitheus Signature TVC which is already better than just about any preamplifier out there. If I were comparing the truth to a tube preamplifier I might be astounded. But one thing is also clear, the truth is the best sounding preamplifier I have had in 40 years and that includes many famous preamplifiers. Now that, Ed, is astounding."

And the best part........"So, yes I am keeping the truth. After I sell the Promitheus I will order a second one."

It's amazing an idiot like me came up with something so good....after 6 1/2 years it is beginning to sink in.....

Hi guys,

Here's a picture of the left side of my room. Don't have a fancy camera so I was unable to take the entire room.
