I have no personal experience with them but I have faith in what Jim and Dennis do. If you have any questions feel free to contact Jim directly. He's a busy guy, but he'll tell you exactly what you need to know.

I just picked up my HTL2-TL's from Jim yesterday with the matching HTC2 center channel.

We really have not spent enough time listening but what has impressed us both is the finish quality. I did Zebra Wood with black and I don't have pics because its hard to capture the quality of the work in pictures.

I took a bunch and without good lights you'll never get it. In fact I was surprised by how large they were because in the pictures its hard to judge.

I think we like to look at them more than listen to them

What impresses me is I have no patience. So to know someone did this finish work by hand, and does it, over and over and over again with the same level of quality is very impressive to me. A lot of dedication and hard work went into the set.

I can tell I need a bigger amp to get really want I need out of them, just trying to drive them with a Yamaha RX-A 2040. Ordered all new cables and will try bi-amping to see if that helps until I decide on an amp.

I did listen to these before I bought them but honestly its not the best listening environment. I went based on reviews of others, their high resale value, and the workmanship. You always wonder when dropping this kind of money if there is going to be any buyers remorse but none here.

Thanks to Jim and his staff.

Congrats on your new speakers. I've always favored those black zebrawood finishes. Do yours look like the ones at the bottom of this post?

Curious as to what symptoms are leading you to believe you need a bigger amp, that's a pretty decent receiver that you're driving them with.

You're pretty lucky that you were able to listen yours beforehand. I would imagine most of us have purchases based on the faith we have in our own research. But like you said, Jim and company do fantastic work, I couldn't be happier with mine.
