That is what my Optimus Pro 77's look like. They sound pretty good for desktop speakers.

it is a bummer to get minimus 7's with hosed tweets as the main claim to fame is in fact the tweeters... I have seen that polk tweeter /woofer also?? mod before... looking at the auction site getting a replacment tweeter or maybe better pair for matchy matchy... seems fairly reasonable price wise...

i have a bunch of minimus 7's ...related speakers around here... I will have to gather them for a family portrait at some point rolleyes.gif anyways Minimus 7, 77, optimus pro- X44AV (ported / shielded minimus 7 basically) , Pro-X5, Pro-X7 , Pro LX5

however only the 77's are actually hooked up to anything atm... sooo many little speakers so little time biggrin.gif

I remember your post. wink.gif

The Pro 77's have Polk Monitor 30 tweeters and Polk T15/R15 both of those woofers they are the same. Stock xover.

Yeah, I was really bummed out considering I paid a bit above the norm for them ($20), however an AK member is graciously sending me a replacement biggrin.gif, which helps me out financially because I am paying half of what the Bay is charging for tweets.

I have NO idea what kind of sub to hook up with these, would prefer powered, maybe just a Sony (say the SA-WMxxx series) or the like from a thrift? I can't have it loud but I need to get the low-end. It will also need to go along with my A speakers (BIC Venturi V25si for the TV). I know someone is going to tell me to get a Boston sub but I don't need much power, I don't think the downstairs neighbor would be happy thinking.gif

Edit: Excuse me, forgot to mention I am using a JVC RX-6000V receiver

Got a pile of Schiit sitting on my desk ^__^

Just got my Asgard 2 and it's sitting next to the Modi, Wyrd and SYS. The Wyrd I bought to try and solve an issue with noise that just ended up being a problem with the Little Dot MKII I had which I returned and bought the Asgard instead. I'm just keeping the Wyrd because Schiit is an amazing company and it's extra money in their pocket.

Wow so I'm listening to these songs I know like the back of my hand on the new Asgard and the sound difference between the Little Dot MKIII I had is just freaking night and day. I wish I just bought this Asgard from the get go. I was a little nervous going back to solid state when I Was on tubes because I really liked the sound but I'm not missing them, not even remotely.
