What we want and what we can afford are always two different things but I doubt Mercedes owners cry themselves to sleep because they don't driver Koenigsegg so I won't do it either.
I wote what I did because I've been lurking for some time and have seen a massive Yamaha hate.......I know it's an enthusiast forums but I would never laugh at a homeless man in an 'up market street' so I appreciate others doing the same courtesy to me.
One more sub, my last two surrounds; and I'll be owning a system I never thought I'd have the money to throw at so I'm pretty have.
I bought my yamaha NS-300's when I was 15 years old ( 400watt peak, 140RMS, 30-35000hz, 91dB ( $5.5AUS /hr at McDonalds.........$1600 layby for the pair......))
At the time I was blown away so I've been a fan of yamaha since and I'm still happy now, so although there is better out there, my ears are pleased, and my wallet is still in tact so I'm more than content.
Thanks again, I expected to be laughed out the door.
