Yes,I will also have my TV,And 5.1 gear plugged in.He told me to just hook up the Q base 8 first,live with that for a while,then add the Q kore.I realize Naim is best plugged directly into the wall,but I now have one (2 plug) receptacle to use behind my stack.There are no filters added to the Q base,so it is not a power conditioner really.

Cool. I came close to buying a QB 8 a while back but opted not to but it. I think Bluvette used Nordost stuff with his Naim gear and had had good results apparently. Tyler didn't seem to think there was an issue with it either. If I needed more sockets I'd consider it again. Interested I. Your thoughts once you get it.

Now that's a bit absurd. I'd say the Focus 160 murders the Emit 20's (in my opinion), and the Special Forty is sure to be well above the 160.

For the money, the Emits are good, but without that qualifier they are nothing special.

You can take one person out of the Special Forty group. I went with the Contour 20 instead.
interesting you opted for the C20 after the sub par reviews you mentioned earlier. I agree with your choice as I'm still shocked by how much I enjoy mine.

I don't want to speak for Sodipop,but from what it sounds like,he was getting fed up with the delivery dates being pushed back.My dealer informed me tonight that he ordered a pair or gray special 40's,and expects them mid July, i think he said.I am going to talk to him tomorrow when I pick up the Q base,to see if they will be available for me to demo,or are they his own personal pair.I am going to try and trade a sub in on a pair ...if he is willing!I am also thinking about the Hugo 2,trying to get the best sounding low volume rig I can.

The focus is the better speaker. Tweeter is near esotar level and there were a few other improvements to the speakers build, woofer and crossover.
