Mine just arrived yesterday. Only problem is, I have no electronics to drive them yet. I've been out of the audio game for about 15 years. I used to have an okay little system (B&W 610i's, one of Mirage's old bipolar powered subs, Parasound pre and amp, Cambridge audio CD player) but the only part of it which might have survived marriage/kids/sitting in a basement is a beast of a Parasound HCA 1200 ii. So I've ordered a Parasound ZPre3, some cables and stands, all of which should arrive this week. Source will be a newer Onkyo CD player I got last year for headphone listening. Hopefully the amp still works . . . once I get the rest of my stuff I want to test it out on some old junk speakers before risking plugging it into my new BMR's.
I haven't heard them yet, but the speakers are beautiful. The "piano black" is a true piano black, as shiny and smooth as could be, and built like a tank. Even my wife, who has zero interest in high end audio, was super impressed with how they looked.
Once I have everything up and running, I'll report back with my impressions. Really excited to have got my hands on these directly from Dennis. He was, as has been repeated endlessly throughout this thread, incredibly great to deal with. Dennis, so happy to hear you're continuing to recover, and here's to happy and fulfilling times going forward.
