Based on the size and shape of you room the Alta Audio Celeste FRM might be a speaker worth looking into.

If your not familiar with them or haven't heard them before, Frank Van Alstine just got a pair into his shop in the last few weeks and I'm sure he would be glad for you to  stop by and hear them.

Wondered if you have any interest in exploring the state of your decision making process. 

 

Lift a few veils, artfully direct a fan stream to raise one edge of the shapeless covering anticipating a grand reveal, remove one or two layers us Minnesotan's are famous for requiring, riddle us with lies and innuendo, accidentally insert tantalizingly leading yet unrelated confidential documents displayed in a personal photo on the Summer intern's social media account du jour, induce a panicked frenzy to secure one of a select list of choices before they are terminally sold out, bring the devout to their knees with heads bowed so you might be inspired to deliver a message ungirdled by the pendulum of pockets that are laboriously laden, go into some off the cuff free association on varied minutiae circling your conscious?

Lash them together, get a waterproof container for your electronics and listen to music while fishing?  I got it, not a bad idea!

 

 

Well, maybe they would serve as a good transducer and fish finder. Wonder how Pearl Jam works as fish sonar? 🤪✌️

Good timing! I actually wired money to the manufacturer yesterday! I should receive the speakers between July 1 - July 5.

 

More information to follow.
