    No, the hotel refused to add the required power we need. So, a drive down the road will have to suffice for interested parties.

    We had 4 dedicated 20 amp circuits, but added 9 more to accommodate the system. There is a thread I started called “The Road to XTreme”. Check it out. It explains everything, the prep, etc.

    Suncoast Audio goes to the EXTREME - MBL XTreme Reference System

    In the latest issue of TAS, the MBL XTreme Reference System is reviewed. Don’t miss it!

    I’ve had this system for almost a month now and am totally blown away. Every listening session is a live concert in your room. The sheer scale and realism is off the charts. I’ve heard some of the best of the best in Munich and this system remains my favorite system of all time.

    I just received my copy of TAS today and read the review of the X-tremes. Just the review I would have expected. Even 10-11 years after first hearing them nothing in my audio experience has equaled that afternoon. There are many excellent speakers to choose from. This is one of only two speakers that I have speaker envy. Oh those fortunate few who don't have to weigh the pro's and con's of such a purchase.
