    Ha! Yes, we will have to start calling this the “send to Mike to play with” room. Dang, I love free stuff, even if it’s for a short while. You think MBL might just forget they sent me the Xtremes to play with? Sent from my iPhone using...

    For me it would come down to the 866 or Luxman 590x. Both are winners. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I was kind of bummed. I had a long talk with the distributor who gave me all the poop. Was hoping for more internal changes. He did say the P3ESR anniversary to P3XD was “incredible”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    It’s identical to Anniversary Edition. Only P3 and C7 get some upgrades with XD. P3 gets the most. 30, SHL5+ and 40 remain identical to anniversary edition. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I know, we’ve all said that privately. “We were the best show of 2020!!” “But you were the only show of 2020”. “Minor details.” We will back in 2022.

    First, I highly doubt their bass traps will treat 40hz, even if you had 20 of them. The only ones that WILL treat that low of a frequency are from Resolution Acoustics who took them to New York to be properly measured. You have some other options....
