    Pretty much agree but for a different reason. Living so close to the Atlantic and the threat of storm surge, its far easier to secure small speakers that some hefty towers if a threat of storm sure hits your area. Like this picture from Matthew...

    I got the MBL a little bit ago; I think the beginning of June. I like it a lot. I think it is my favorite amplifier that I have owned. The Meta appear to be a very nice improvement over the original LS50's (which I did own). With the Rythmik...

    Well when the only post they make is " like an advertisement" well its out of form. Mike if I'm not mistaken, always noted for these "business" to contact him first. And congrats to the customer getting some awesome speakers.

    Yes, probably most do not affect Mike, but some might. Also, if they are as I suspect some are, nefarious in some way then it could definitely be an issue.

    Exactly... I have never tried Avira, but I have heard it is another one of the better virus programs along with Norton (my favorite), Kaspersky (always very highly rated), Bitdefender (always on the list of best virus scanners), among several others.
