Pardon me for going back a few months, but "personal issues" have kept me away.
Just a report on the 2.7s and the SS2 sub. I've been using them for about 6 to 10 hours a day, both via a superb FM station (WBJC Baltimore) and my CD collection - - - driven by a Bryston 4B SST2.
Yes, IMO, the break-in took some time, but was worth it. Now, after around a year's use, my three "golden ear" and classical music-loving friends claim that the sound is exemplary. To use some of their words - - - "Natural - Put Together - Clean - Superb for extended listening - I can lose myself in the sound - Now, I truly believe accurate stereo made Mahler listenable - Doesn't tire me out to listen - Seamless and honest bass - and, Gorgeous, clean. sound."
Of course, being mine, I agree, but I'm really happy, and I do not feel the itch towards further upgrading. (The Lambda Pro Stax headphones still are a wonder).
Now, all I have to do, is to select the source and composition, sit back, and enjoy!
