I am just sending a note to express how pleased I am with my Super Sound Cylinders. I have been living with them for about six months now and I couldn’t be more pleased with the sound. I have an Emotiva XPA amplifier driving them and every time I turn the system on, even after six months, I am impressed all over again. I will sit and listen for extended periods turning up the volume more and more, and getting absorbed in the sound. I have never done this before, ever. I spent lots of time in hifi stores listening to high end speakers before buying these. I must admit that I was nervous spending what seemed like a lot of money on a pair of speakers, and doing it without hearing them first, but after spending time with the SSC speakers, it was completely worth it, perhaps a bargain. Thanks for adding this experience to my life. Very well done!
