Yeah I'm expecting big things from them, haven't heard them but I am coming from a pair of 1028's so I have a good idea of what to expect, should be fun!
I'll be spiking them alright, previously had Sound-O-City outriggers installed on my 1028's and they made a definite improvement to the imaging, soundstage depth/height and bass grip (this even over the included spikes). Have a matching CC1008Be on the way, too. Driving them with an Arcam AVR600 at the moment, will be adding external amplification down the road, not that I really need
it, the AVR600 is a beast. Sold my Cambridge Audio Azur 840C so I don't have a great source at the moment but just outputting flac/wav via the HTPC (Foobar2k via RCA Out, WASAPI mode) sounds great for now, no complaints right now but will definitely be adding much, much more to the system.
Will post some pics when I have them set-up!
Love your system, by the way! I'll be ordering a room kit from GIK down the road too
