    Thanks. Another important thing is synergy.

    And I know it may be heresy for some to hear this, I think the MBL Reference digital is as good as the MSB.

    Are you using any footers under MBL speakers? I think MBL shows with either Stillpoints or Shun Mook Audio depending on the room situation.

    Not on the XTremes. They have built in spikes.

    For my 101ís Iíve ordered some Symposium platforms with a special config which I got from a distributor in Asia.

    I have heard great things about those. What is the expected result?

    It’s a better match. MBL speakers sound best when all MBL components are used in the system from front end to back end. This is the way MBL designed it to be used.

    Sorry. I respectfully disagree. I owned MBL 101 for several years. I had 9011 driving 101. But the best amp I had driving 101 is VAC 450. VAC drives them with better dynamics than 9011. 9011 is very ordinary. It rarely partners with other speakers because it is ordinary.

    BTW, 101 is the best speaker I ever owned. I love them so much. Unfortunately, my room is too small for them. 101X is my dream speaker. Hopefully, I will own them one day. But before that, I need to find a bigger room.
