I'm glad you are loving those Veritas, very nice choice to pick them up.
I sold the black ash C-8s for $400 and the person that bought them was thrilled. I had no room to enjoy them properly and it was time to clean out some items.
I have been listening to the third best Energy titans and am loving them. I haven't compared them to the 70s yet, but I will. I have been extremely busy with work and personal things with the soon to be wife. Also, I have been playing around with a switch between a Pioneer SX-950 and a Luxman R-1120. The Pioneer has been completely rebuilt and the Luxman is all original, and the Luxman is the keeper.
