Feel free to PM me if you have any questions at all--happy to share my own experiences in audio!
@Kweisner - Very nice Vandersteen Model 5s! I have Vandy Model 2s and his Model 2W subwoofer. I'd love to go to Model 5s some day, but they're a little rich for my blood these days. I'm running a Thorens turntable. I'd like to hear more about your turntable setup.
Have you ever talked to Vandersteen himself? He's a really interesting guy.
