1st pardon my spelling. 2nd this is long but I need to explain. I've been a music lover since the age of 4. I am now 71. As you can assume I started life with the magic of tubes there was no solid state to be found. In 1954 my mother bought a tube zenith console consisting of a radio and record player. monaural. when I played that sucker I couldn't keep my feet still. It lasted about 7 years until and it made the long journey. Being a blue caller worker I could never afford the good stuff. over the years I had variety of RCA, NAD, carver, and Denon all pretty good stuff but nothing magical. Remember the pallet forgets. A couple of weeks ago I took my wife shopping at Mace's while I went my way to BestBuy to browse. I walked by a music display not paying any attention to it until I past it. I said to myself holy crap went back to the display to a pair op martin Logan 15A. Remember the pallet never forgets. But at 15 grand they were way out of my league. The sales lady said she had a pair of last years summit x's. listening to them I was sold. after 67 years I'm a very happy guy.
