Seems to be about comparable to the early Proceed and Lexicon offerings. I was going to build some line array speakers using a BFM design, but since I'm on the road way too much for a home build project, have decided instead on good ol' M&K s150's for the front 3 channels. This is exclusively for my home theatre, as I have a separate system upstairs for music.

So what did you pay?

Anything you order from the states could be subject to import duty tax. Especially since schiit declare the full worth of their items when they post them

Look what showed up today!



I can honestly say that moving from my ATH-AD500's/On Board Audio to this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not to mention I got it all set up, loaded up Foobar2000 and played some .FLAC's and wow... I can't really describe it but, I can just hear more of the music. Bits and pieces that I never knew existed before. This is truly amazing. I now understand a little bit of what I've been missing out on, even when I had a good sound card in my old rig it didn't even come close to this! Well... Enough rambling, off to listen to some more tunes. biggrin.gif

Probably too much! $750 for the GTA/GTX, $100 for the Peavey.

Hmm, interesting question... I guess I never really thought about trying. I just assumed that the Q701's would blow the ATH-AD500's away. But maybe I will give it a shot just for kicks. tongue.gif

the way to improve your audio the most is through source. if its a crap source it dosent matter what you have it'll still sound like crap. so now you get to see what the ath's really sound like.
