After three years of wanting a set of radials I have saved enough money to actually place my order.  Have also ordered a Select to power them.

Now I am in the process of reconstructing my 13x26x8 livingroom to attempt to replicate Steve's listening room.

When the new gear arrives my attention will be given to tuning the room with diffusers/bass traps and whatever else improves the audio experience.  It helps as there is no "committee" here to obtain approval for decorating changes from.

Yes sir, Lon.  The 1.5's would have been just fine but I thought that these might just be my last so I bit the bullit.

Now, if I just had a small portion of your soft ware collection............

Hmmmm. . . I don't recommend the debt that accompanies this software collection! Grin

I'm sure you'll enjoy them.  I've been tempted by the 1.5s. . .because I know how much I liked the 1s and how much I like the 2s and it combines features of both!

Nah, can't go for it. . . . I'm not going to be able to afford to buy new speakers for some time to come.  Way overdid my audio budget the last few years!

And. . .my wife is going through really rough medical straits this winter into spring. . . . Going to have to hold onto all my cards.

Hey Bob,

I ordered Walnut.

DeVon said you had lots of orders on your plate so I expect a waiting period.

I sent you a PM.

Yes I do have lots on my plate,  I was actually getting ready to start another run of 3's so when I saw this I just figured I'd add it to this production run.

 One of these days I'm going to have to build myself a set of 3's I finally got tired of looking at the proto-types (ugly black. I mean butt ugly) and I keep adding a pair for myself every run, and there usually sold before I get them finished. Two runs ago I built myself a pair of Rosewood RL-3's figuring no one would ask for Rosewood, I didn't even get the veneer on them and someone IM'ed me with a picture taken at Randy's house of Steve's Rosewood RL-2's. So I move on to something else, may painted dark red metalic....that would be nice.

   I guess its like the plumbers pipes and the mechanics cars.....

Hey Bob,

With your list of toys, I have a hard time mustering any sympathy for a better looking RL3 in your room.

I would gladly exchange a small appendage to defer the cost for the burl veneer on my new speakers.
