What should I do with these cartridges?
Without knowing the other 2, I'd guess the ADC is the one. I have a Mk II that still sounds great. The very first version of the XLM was the finest cartridge I ever owned. 
Is there really a need for panel speakers in 2012
Just my opinion, but the box hasn't been built that can compare to a planar. 
NAD t747 8ohms minimum- Speakers I want, 6ohms

Jarcher....I'm thinking of this table. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I tried to register at audio circle, but can't. (They say my address matches a spammer address...good gawd.) 
Traveler Vs TT15s1 vs?
Swanny...thanks for that...static never occurred to me. I'm more than happy with my cartridge...actually phono stage too, although it can be improved upon. I've never had a non-suspended table before...hope I'm not going to regret it. The one thin...

Thanks, but no one has answered the question. WILL the xover setting on the sub filter the low frequencies going to the Maggies IF I wire them as described? 
Any Emerald Physics owners in Pittsburgh?
Thanks Todd. I may take you up on that. Either way, it's nice to meet a fellow Burgher that's into audio!

Tmsorok...that's not gonna happen. LOLFrogman....I agree with your assessment on the IIIs. I guess I will sit tight for a bit and if a good deal on 3.6s (or even IIIas) doesn't pop up, send mine in to Magnepan. Thanks for the input.

Hifiharv...I talked to them a couple months ago and they said they would work on them. Josh...don't think I want to get into that....above my pay grade. LOL. Frogman...thanks for that. I've heard people say that the 3.6 was the first of the series...
