The whole mannequin thing creeps me out a bit too, though in a "I like a chill as much as the next guy" kinda thing. Must have been those Wax Museums my folks took me to way too young. :eek:

I sure hope my IV-A's don't crap out before I do. I really do think their something special. I have a pair of Aletha's as backups, but like the midrange of the IV-A's better.
