    Re: Shunyata Typhon T2

    I wonder how the Typhon T2 would work in conjunction with the Everest, connected by the umbilical. Has anyone tried this combo?

    Re: Delivery day has arrived!

    3. M2
    4. M9

    All speakers should get carbon-graphene aluminun honeycomb sandwich drivers and carbon aluminum honeycomb cabinet sides...
