Looks like another late night in front of these speakers -- another night of tears in my eyes, lol. Tonight I was listening to a bunch of classic stuff that I know my dad used to love and I just kept wishing he could be here to hear them with me. Unfortunately, he passed a few years back; this doesn't help with the tears, lol.
As for WAF -- I can't speak to that, I hate to tell people what they'd want to accept into their homes, but I can say the finish on these is really quite nice. They are certainly not small, but in a big enough room, I don't think they are overwhelming. I'm sure my wife would disagree, but she understands (or at least tolerates, lol) my passion for sound. I suppose I'm lucky, just don't tell her, I don't need her head swelling up, lol.
