Best sounding table radio ever...
Forget saba, for about $200 you can get the Proton P300 with powered stereo speaker the P301. Best sounding radio evah. Usually on ebay.

Amp quality / Slam
Check once again for proper wiring polarity; if one woofer is out of phase, say goodbye to slam. Use a test CD if available, or just trace wires from amp to speakers.ALSO, take out the PS Audio Ultimate Outlet. Having used one myself, I found it d...

has anyone heard the original ml statements
Heard them at an LA HiFi Show a few years ago configured as Eldragon described. But to me all instruments sounded over-sized, it was "hi-fi" sounding, not natural. 
My system has just received the ultimate insult
