    I can post the pic later once I get home. I use same as what Mike uses with a bit of tweak since our rooms are very identical.

    Quite a nice speaker demo, and well played.

    I think I will ask for a home demo of the Duo XDs, just for the fun of it. I like my Magicos, but I am also intrigued by the immediacy of horn sound.

    Sounds like fun. Make sure you get a sweet SET amp too. I can email you my XD config as a starting point.
